People are at the heart of everything we do at Compendium Living.
Pivotal to our regeneration and place-making projects is the objective of creating a legacy of employment and training of local people in the long term.
We regularly recruit people directly from the communities we work within. This includes the employment of apprentices who receive a genuine opportunity to build a real career in our industry.
Take Harry Hudson for instance. We recruited Harry as an apprentice joiner through local training provider Hull Training during our recently completed first development at Ings, Hull. We have now employed him following successful completion of his L2 apprenticeship. This is enabling Harry to commence his L3 qualification on our second site within Ings and progress his joinery career.
We also actively engage with local businesses to encourage them to become part of our supply chain to ensure money flows through the local business community to underpin the local economy and encourage confidence and increased employment.
We regularly engage with schools to encourage an appreciation of the skills required in the regeneration and building industry and involve ourselves in a wide range of educational, sports and cultural sponsorship.
Our efforts in community engagement have not gone unnoticed and we have been the recipients of numerous awards, including Bfl, BREEAM Communities and What House Awards.
