Luke Clarke  Clive BevanCasey is working with Build Salford to encourage young people to take on apprenticeships and careers in construction.

The Build Salford traineeship is a 16-week course, based at Salford City College, which gives twenty young people age 16-24 the opportunity to get into a construction based apprenticeship by providing them with practical hands-on training, access to extensive work experience, job preparation support and quality classes and tutorials delivered by experienced industry experts.

Phil Hey, Group Health and Safety Advisor, and Tony Doran, Senior Site Manager, at Casey have each delivered a session to the trainees. In 2017, one trainee spent 5 weeks on the Casey expansion of the Nycomm warehousing facilities in Agecroft.

The initiative is supported by Salix Homes, Together Housing, Great Places, Affinity Sutton, Casey, Seddon, Galliford Try Partnerships, Keepmoat, Salford City Council, Connexions, Procure Plus and Salford City College.
