JANUARY 2020 


Our January Employer Spotlight is ... McTaggart Construction for their incredible work supporting Developing Young Workforce. Below are three key highlights in which they supported the future workforce. 

 

In 2019 McTaggart Construction took on 14 Foundation Apprenticeships supporting young people to develop the skills and experience they need to succeed in the world of work. Although they are a construction company they recruited foundation apprentices in Digital, Business Administration and Engineering Systems.

 

McTaggart Construction supported STEM Fest 2019, an event to profile STEM careers to young people and parents to encourage them to think about their industry as a viable career. They attended the three day event which seen 1179 young people & parents visit Glasgow Science Centre.

McTaggart recognise the need to promote their industry to young people in order to address their talent pipeline and attract young people to the industry. In 2019 they delivered 16 site visits, across 9 sites attended by over 200 people from 8 schools across Glasgow. Following on from these site visits, those young people who were still interested in hearing more about the firm where invited to take part in work experience, they were then offered a mock interview and out of those, 3 young people got offered various apprenticeships at the firm.

We are delighted to recognise McTaggart as our Employer Spotlight and for those who want to meet the team, they will be taking park in Scotland’s Biggest Parents Evening on the 30th January at Glasgow Science Centre. Click here for more details.
