Local young people see the benefit of Lower Falinge work placements

We've worked with our construction partners EQUANS to enable local young people to access work placements on our development of new homes in Lower Falinge, as part of our shared commitment to social value.

Lower Falinge work placement

We were really pleased to have been able to welcome two local young people onto our construction site at Lower Falinge for work placements, thanks to our partners EQUANS and Groundwork Greater Manchester.

We were excited to welcome Jordan Shepherd and Aqib Bangash onto site in October as part of their participation in Groundwork's low carbon careers course. Jordan completed a one week joinery placement and Aqib undertook a two week brickwork placement. We are very grateful to EQUANS for accommodating these placements as part of our shared commitment to social value.

We’re delighted to have worked alongside RBH and Groundwork to provide vital work experience on our scheme. We’re pleased to be helping provide vital skills and experience for those looking to enter the construction industry and look forward to continuing this across the North West and beyond.

We’re thrilled that RBH working in partnership with EQUANS have hosted two participants from our Groundworks Greater Manchester Low Carbon Careers Programme on their development in Lower Falinge. Jordan and Aqib were both keen to get hands on experience in construction and a chance to understand how new construction techniques will impact the sector. They’ve received really great insight and advice from the team and come away with a better understanding of the construction process having spent time on site. Our thanks goes to RBH and EQUANS team for brokering and hosting these placements.
