Construction Skills

Would you like to make a difference by helping local people?

Major developments are anticipated in Trafford with schemes providing new housing and employment space such as including; Trafford Waters, Pomona and 10,000 new homes in Carrington over the next 20 years.

With all this upcoming development, there has been a greater demand for skilled workers in the construction industry; covering everything from Architects to Project Managers and Quantity Surveyors.

To meet this increase in demand, the Borough of Trafford will require more of our residents and young people to move into the construction industry. To anticipate the increase in demand, Trafford Council have created the Trafford Construction Sub-Group; consisting of construction companies with upcoming or current schemes in Trafford, local housing providers, Trafford Council and STAR Procurement.

The aim of the group is to:

  • coordinate employment and training opportunities arising from Trafford developments
  • create links with local schools to inspire a future talent pipeline
  • maximise social investment opportunities

If you express an interest in join the Trafford Construction Sub-Group, view our Terms of Reference for further information regarding membership.
