Interserve welcomes Chancellor’s commitment to employment in construction sector

by Interserve Press Office | Jul 08, 2020

Interserve Construction has welcomed Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s commitment to support job creation in the construction sector and the UK Government’s investment in 'greening up' public buildings including schools and hospitals.

Paul Gandy, Managing Director, Interserve Construction, said: “As one of the country’s leading education and healthcare contractors we welcome the Chancellor’s announcement regarding the Government’s green building agenda for schools and hospitals, his investment in traineeships for 18- to-24-year-olds and apprenticeships.

“As the country emerges from the coronavirus crisis and construction activity resumes, job protection and job creation must form part of the economic recovery and the new funding for traineeships and apprenticeships will ensure that the UK construction sector can revamp its skills systems to support the Government’s vision.

“Following the Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement on the Government’s transformative £5bn rebuilding programme for schools and hospitals across England, the Chancellor has delivered a further stimulus to the economy where the construction sector will play a pivotal role.”
