Redrow is helping tackle the problem of youth unem- ployment. As the company adds 10 new sales trainees to its payroll, statistics show it has an excellent record of employing young people. One in seven of Red- row’s 920 employees are aged 16 to 24, a signifi- cant number are appren- tices and graduate trainees. Redrow boss Steve Morgan believes it’s way ahead of other housebuilders when coming to giving young people a chance.


TWC’s Turnaround scheme has secured an extra £40,000 to provide activi- ties and skills sessions for youngsters not in education or training (NEETS).

Initial funding from the ESF was secured last April

and after engaging over 50 young people in a various projects, the ESF recog- nised

the positive results

gained in the borough. So the ESF has given a boost to TWC’s Turnaround Project. The project works in part-


combines formal training with ‘on the job’ experience, culminating in an NVQ level 2.

Steve, who launched the business aged 21 with a £5,000 loan from his father, said: “The fact over a million 16 to 24-year-olds in the UK are out of work is a dis- grace. At Redrow we’re do- ing our bit to help through initiatives

like apprentice-

ships, graduate training programmes, general em- ployment of youngsters and this latest venture, our new sales training scheme. If other companies did the same it would make a mas- sive difference.” A strong track record in training and developing the skills of employees helped Redrow to be included in Building magazine’s Good Employer Guide, a list of the top 61 construction or con- struction related business- es to work for in the UK. Judges described career progression as one of Red- row’s “standout benefits”. The new sales training programme has seen 10 more young people recruit- ed in England and Wales. The scheme’s designed to develop skills and experi- ence needed to work as Redrow sales consultants, selling new homes to cus- tomers at developments. It

Steve added: “We all live, breathe and sleep Redrow and it’s quite hard for some- one to come into the busi- ness from outside and un- derstand that. This scheme is all about home growing talent, educating them in the ‘Redrow way’ it gives youngsters the opportunity to become the managers of the future. We already have several examples in the business of directors who started as trainees, so there’ss no limit to where these young people can go.” To find out more about working for Redrow visit: Careers-And-Recruitment/ Apprentices.

nership with the Education Development Service, TCAT and Wyldwoods to deliver confidence building, essen- tial life skills and employabil- ity training.

The project aims to pro- vide youngsters the skills they’ll need to go onto fur- ther training/education or to secure jobs. To date, over 60% of the young people involved in the Turnaround Project went on to secure work or continue their education.

The extra funding will help run two extra projects to target youngsters in lo- cal communities that haven’t yet benefited from the Turna- round Project; Donnington is the main area that will benefit.

The next available ses- sion opens at Donnington Lifelong Learning Centre, Wednesday 28 March - all youngsters aged 16-18 years who aren’t in educa- tion, employment or training are welcome. For details call 01952 38883 or 07989 316037.
