Business Critical Solutions (BCS) has announced it has begun recruitment for this year’s apprenticeship programme.
The programme, run in partnership with Southbank University, aims to help tackle the skills shortage in the engineering and data centre sector. This year it is looking for the next generation of Quantity Surveyors and Project Managers.
The programme has been running for six years and offers apprentices the opportunity be involved in every aspect of the BCS business, working across the entire client portfolio and seeing first-hand hyperscale data centre construction projects from the blueprint stages right through to the delivery.
Fay Visaya, Consultant at BCS, said, “We are passionate about building a learning culture that gives apprentices the opportunity to shine from the outset, with the BCS’ Assistant Training Programme designed to give them the technical (office based) and practical (site based) knowledge, skills, and experience they need whilst supporting their studies. We also find that their fresh thinking, enthusiasm and passion is good for our business as it can reinvigorate the way we look at and approach things.”
Chris Coward, Director of Project Management at BCS, added, “The skills shortage in the industry is still very real and we believe it is vital that we continue to invest in the skillset of the next generation of professionals. Those who are accepted onto this programme can be assured of receiving a rigorous education in construction and engineering that has been carefully developed by the BCS team.”
