Apprentices and graduates

Thakeham are committed to generating social value for all our stakeholders, including our people and communities in which we work. One of our key strategic pillars to generate social value is ‘Building a Stronger Industry’, which covers being an exemplary employer and business to work with.

Part of this is our approach to resolving the construction industry skills gap by delivering training opportunities to our teams and enabling apprenticeships across our organization and supply chain.
