Compass Developments wins Investing in Young People Award!

As part of our ongoing partnership with local charity, Phoenix Detached Youth Project, our Company Secretary, Chris Morris and Project Manager, Ken Jones, were delighted to accept their ‘Investing in Young People Business Award 2020’ from our latest apprentice, Ben Cann.

Ben initially joined the business for work experience back in February, as part of the Charity’s Young People in Construction Scheme and immediately caught the attention of our management team through his hard work and dedication to the role, resulting in us offering him a full apprenticeship in Joinery which he began in September.

We look forward to strengthening our relationship with the charity going forwards in the hope of providing further employment opportunities to the region’s young people, whilst addressing the skills shortage within our industry, by helping to develop and promote the next generation of construction professionals.

If any of our contacts would like to get involved with supporting this fantastic charity, through trade based work experience opportunities, please contact Chris Morris on chris@compassdev.co.uk
