Paul Taylor, Business Development Manager for Harris CM, was pleased to attend the Capacity Building Forum, as a guest of Opportunity Sheffield.
Opportunity Sheffield is the Council’s employment and skills service tasked with creating employment opportunities and breaking down barriers to employment, particularly for those furthest from the labour market. This helps businesses to grow and develop a skilled, adaptable workforce, enabling them to thrive and support the growth of the local economy.
The Capacity Building Forum is a get together for the providers on ‘Sheffield’s Working’ programme, and Paul explained what Harris CM counts as being ‘Job Ready’ for any prospective candidates looking to be recruited by an employer.
The discussions were extended to the range of career opportunities in the construction industry, and the best way to pursue them.
