Shelby is a construction ambassador for our industry and regularly mentors and supports new apprentices, NEETS and unemployed individuals throughout their careers. Shelby plays an active part in our Renov8 project.

"People have this perception of construction as a low-pay, grubby and male industry – but the truth is completely the opposite. It’s such a creative industry and there is an incredible variety of careers available for people of all walks of life.
I love working as part of a team, getting out and about on different sites and, most importantly, being able to walk into a room with my tools and make something great out of it. If that sounds like something you are up for – male or female – then construction is the industry for you, and getting an apprenticeship is the best way to start.”
