The 20 individuals have taken part in an optional, additional qualification to become accredited ambassadors for the construction industry. The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) training course means the ambassadors are now the ‘faces of the construction industry’. 

The new qualification asks the ambassadors to deliver school talks, attend recruitment and careers events, as well as regularly promoting the range of careers and opportunities available through the construction sector.

Frank Reid, Managing Director, Robertson Northern said: “Our team at Robertson are very enthusiastic about promoting the construction industry as a career path and I’m pleased to have this formalised with the CITB qualification.

“Our ambassadors will be attending events, conducting talks and doing school visits as part of their ambassador role, and this is alongside their day-to-day job. The enthusiasm from people within our sector is infectious and I hope this inspires youngsters to think of us as a career option.”

The individuals that now call themselves construction ambassadors came from a variety of roles within Robertson Northern including; Business Development, Site Management, Business Systems and Operational Management. The team is spread across the North of Scotland, operating in Moray, Inverness and Fort William.

Robertson Northern forms part of Robertson, which celebrated its 50th year of trading in 2016. Robertson consists of 22 companies, employing over 2,500 people across Scotland and the North and Midlands of England, and has a turnover in excess of £600m.
