Local Partnership with Dumfries Developing the Young Workforce
Aug 30, 2018
We have been in discussions with local authorities and businesses to introduce the younger workforce to businesses in Engineering and Manufacturing in the local area.
This is a project that Robinsons has strongly believed in for a number of years and we have been in discussions with local schools in the area to open up communication channels to arrange workplace visits for the young students.
Andrew Robb, our Design Team Manager has actively picked up the baton and is keen to raise the companies profile to our local youngsters. We have visited local businesses to discuss the difficulties that the local engineering and manufacturing industries are having in resourcing the training in the local area as well as recruiting and sustaining a generation of skilled workers.
We are planning on having a couple of site visits per year for local schools to visit, giving the company an opportunity to promote the business and the job opportunities that are available.
We’re delighted to be able to give back to our local communities and help support the construction industry leaders of the future to learn in our industry.
