Building Our Skills – make a difference, make a pledge and commit to inspiring the future

Building Our Skills – Making Fenestration A Career of Choice (BOS) has embarked on a recruitment drive with a difference ‘highlighting the need for the industry to come together and eliminate its ever-growing skills gap’.

Continuing to build on its key objective, heighten awareness of the Fenestration industry to new and young people, the organisation is encouraging individuals from the industry’s community to make a pledge by signing up and committing to its ‘Inspiring The Future’ campaign.

The campaign, which focuses on recruiting volunteers from within the Fenestration sector is supported by FENSA, and will highlight the work of many of its existing campaign supporters over several social media channels, whilst looking for new recruits.

Stephanie Tague, Head of BOS commented: ‘In order, to attract new talent, we need to promote our industry positively and encourage more youngsters to contemplate the Fenestration industry when considering their career options.

‘Each one of us has a story to tell, whether you are an Apprentice or a Chief Executive, no one is exempt and the campaign helps set out how by committing to become a volunteer, a champion, an ambassador or an advocate of Building Our Skills you will be making a real difference, raising the industry’s profile amongst the younger generation.’ Stephanie adds.

Committing to being involved with the ‘Inspiring The Future’ initiative, means you will be asked to pledge your support – either as an individual or a business. There are many different activities in which supporters can get involved, including signing up as a volunteer and chatting to young people, sharing with them information about the industry, job roles and career choices.

‘Building Our Skills has created a variety of useful resources for those looking to help take those first steps on spreading the Fenestration word.’ Stephanie continues, ‘We have produced a series of videos and guidance documents all free to use when visiting schools or engaging with young people.’

For those passionate about making a difference in attracting new and young people to address the industry’s skills gap, or just needing a little extra encouragement for how they could get involved and commit, contact Stephanie directly on 07789 344479 email and don’t forget to like, comment and share our posts on LinkedIn @buildingourskills, Facebook @buildingouskills, Twitter @BOSFenestration
