“I am proud to be Vice Chair of the SWAAN, having been a member for a number of years. I have a proven track record in identifying and (with support of others) delivering sustainable apprenticeship opportunities not only for the employers I’ve worked for, but also through our supply chain. I ensure we go ‘the extra mile’ to effectively engage with suitable partners – training providers, peers and senior managers, and supply chain – providing insight, support and motivation to deliver an increased number of apprentice opportunities across our construction projects – I welcome the opportunity to support others, in any business sector, to do the same.”
