hub South West Events

Kier smallerhub South West is committed to positively engaging with the locally based supply chain, with a view to helping them improve their chances of gaining hub contracts. By doing this, it is anticipated that more of the circa £500m construction spend over the next 5 years will result in contracts for local companies and jobs for local people.

Our workshops and events are open to all members and aspiring members of hub South West’s Territory Supplier Network and are designed to build skills and create meaningful networking opportunities (with hub SW, Tier 1 contractors, presenters and other delegates) for those attending.

If you would like to attend, please complete the simple booking form and we will get back to you.

  • Best employment initiative for young people

Each Category will be divided into two – companies employing more than 25 people and those with under 25 people.

All entries must be directly linked to a specific hub South West project i.e. any initiative entered must have been rolled out on a hub South West project, any company entering must have been contracted on a hub South West project. Entries are limited to one per company.

Best Employment Initiative for Young People: will be judged on the criteria of youth employment, the introduction of construction as a viable career path, structured framework apprenticeships, graduate programmes, and initiatives target at women, the disadvantaged and disabled.

Best Training Culture: will examine ideas and programmes that have proven successful, with a learning platform that encourages training and staff development that underpins the overall development of the business.

The Awards Ceremony is to be held at the Dalziel Park Hotel Motherwell on the 16th May 2019
