Galliford Try Partnerships and Salix Homes open doors to the public in Swinton

Galliford Try Partnerships and Salix Homes open doors to the public in Swinton

Leading housing and regeneration specialist Galliford Try Partnerships, in conjunction with Salford housing association Salix Homes, is hosting an open day in Swinton to highlight careers in construction to potential new starters.

The Open Doors event will be held at Beechfarm, also known as the Poets Estate, in Swinton, on Monday 27th March (10am- 2.30pm).

Galliford Try Partnerships and Salix Homes are calling for local students of high school and college age, as well as school leavers and university graduates with an interest in a future in construction, to join them for what promises to be an interesting and informative event which could potentially lead to a new career path in construction.

Galliford Try Partnerships is working on a large scale housebuilding project with Salix Homes to regenerate this area of Salford. This will see the demolition of 146 properties, to be replaced with 161 new two, three and four bedroom homes for both rent and sale.

Visitors at the event will be given the opportunity to visit the site first-hand to get a feel for what it is like to work in the industry and Martin Sharkey, build manager and Gary Pepper, site manager for Galliford Try Partnerships, will be on hand to answer any questions about careers in construction.

Alyssa Knowles, bid coordinator for Galliford Try Partnerships, said: “Our open days are a fantastic opportunity for those interested in construction to come to site and see exactly what we do as an organisation.

“There are various career opportunities on offer in the construction sector, which many people may not even know about, so we would advise anybody who is interested to come along and ask us anything. It could spark a new career with truly excellent prospects, so it’s a great way to spend a day.”

Terry McBride, development manager at Salix Homes said: “We work closely with our partners – including Galliford Try Partnerships – in opening up educational, training and employment avenues for Salfordians. We hope many people will grasp this chance which could lead to a future in the construction industry.”

All attendees must register for the event in advance and should visit http://opendoors.construction/site/571 to book a place.
