The Thakeham Group supports CTP at employment fair for Armed Forces

The Thakeham Group is delighted to support the CTP Employment Fair

This is a fabulous opportunity for service veterans to meet local and national employers, including ourselves, with both current and future job vacancies.

Over 14,000 skilled and experienced individuals leave the Armed Forces each year*, looking for new opportunities and offering a wealth of skills and talent. We believe construction and housebuilding can offer excellent career choices. The Thakeham Group supports service leavers in new careers in house building and construction through its recruitment programme: Talent for Development.

Working in partnership

In addition to the opportunities Thakeham can offer, we work with a team of highly professional, hand-picked consultants, suppliers and contractors, many with current recruitment opportunities.

By working with this network of trusted partners, the Thakeham Group can facilitate employment opportunities that reflect the entire lifecycle of development. Opportunities range from land sourcing and planning promotion through to technical, design, engineering, quantity surveying, buying, site management and on to marketing, sales, customer service and support administration.

Building relationships

We establish long and successful relationships. Our Talent for Development initiative will see us working closely with our contacts, promoting and communicating careers in house building and construction. This is important to us and to the future of our industry. Lee Roberts is a valuable addition to our team, an Assistant Site Manager for Thakeham Client and ex-Royal Engineer.

Lee says: “Following 22 years in the military, strong values, high standards and strong communication skills are all very natural for me. My Royal Engineers experience with responsibility for Military infrastructure projects, has allowed me the opportunity of an Assistant Site Manager role with Thakeham. I am delighted to be part of the team at Thakeham and involved in the Talent for Development initiative.”
