TClarke boss voices support for apprentices
CEO of building services specialist TClarke, Mark Lawrence, has urged clients and main contractors to favour firms who take on apprentices.
Mr Lawrence called for a commitment to training to be recognised when handing out subcontract packages.
Speaking to Construction Enquirer, he said that during the coronavirus crisis TClarke “showed our willingness to invest in our future, in our new apprentices future, in the futures of 180 apprentices across the Group and in our industry’s future”. He added: “We have an urgent need for more skills. We need to build those skills right here – right now.”
Mr Lawrence spoke out as the firm took on its latest cohort of apprentices.
