The construction, refurbishment and maintenance contractor is offering at least 15 apprenticeships and traineeships for various trades, quantity surveying, construction management, site management and administration.
Attendees had the opportunity to meet with the company’s Recruitment Team and current employees to find out more about careers at Clark Contracts and how they can progress through the company’s highly successful Academy.
David Cooper, Director, Clark Contracts said, “As we had such a fantastic response to our first careers event in Paisley last year, we decided to hold a similar event in Edinburgh as well as Paisley this year. We have met some very talented, skilled and enthusiastic people at a variety of levels, who could be a valuable addition to the team here and we look forward to further discussions with them. As we work towards closing the skills gap in the construction industry, it’s important for us to spread the word about what we are doing here with our Academy.”
