An innovative initiative – Build Enfield – has officially launched with the aim of creating a strong and sustainable workforce in the construction industry throughout the borough and beyond.
 
Already, through Enfield Council’s Construct With Us events, Build Enfield has found jobs and apprenticeships for local people and further projects are already in the pipeline.
 
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Regeneration and Business, Cllr Alan Sitkin, said: “Build Enfield is one of the most innovative campaigns this Council has launched in recent years as it will foster a generation of workers who will literally build, regenerate and sustain our borough.
 
“Our aim is to help people from all walks of life to learn about the construction industry - there are jobs for everyone whether you are a parent looking to get back into work or a recent graduate. Take a look at the new website and find out how you can help to Build Enfield.”
 
For those interested in finding out about working in the construction industry, an informative website has been created. Go to www.enfield.gov.uk/build to find out more about training, apprenticeships, building initiatives in the borough and information on our partners. One of our recent success stories features Alpha Nkaya, a local man living in the east of the borough who attended a Construct With Us event earlier this year and is now employed by building firm Mulalley on the Lytchett Estate regeneration project.
 
Other flagship builds around the borough include the £6 billion Meridian Water project which will create 10,000 homes and 6,700 jobs and the wide-ranging regeneration of Ponders End.
 
Cllr Sitkin said: “Build Enfield forms part of the Council’s priority to build stronger communities. We believe Build Enfield can deliver a local solution to a national problem, namely to bring our skilled and enthusiastic workforce to the construction industry so they can take advantage of the many work opportunities in the borough and further afield.”
