Redrow is playing its part in the Government’s eight-week consultation on leasehold, which was announced on 25th July 2017.
Redrow has achieved a record 27 awards at the Pride in the Job Quality Awards. The accolade, established by the National House Building Council, celebrates the exceptional contribution site managers make in creating homes of outstanding quality.
Karen Jones, HR Director at leading housebuilder Redrow, comments on the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy: “The Government’s recognition of the need to focus on grassroots recruitment through a number of avenues is to be applauded, and the introduction of the Levy will directly increase the number of businesses growing apprentice numbers across the UK. Technical skillsets, in particular in sectors such as construction, engineering and health and social care, are vital to the strength of UK PLC but are currently in short supply so this policy represents a significant step in the right direction.
Redrow has achieved an 88.9% customer referral rating score in the year 2015/16 and an overall four star rating, as revealed in the latest national new home customer satisfaction survey from the Home Builders Federation.
Matt Grayson, spokesperson for Redrow, said: “Along with the rest of the house building industry, we’re currently engaging with Government on leasehold and new build houses, as part of its Housing White Paper, which was issued in early February 2017. That consultation is ongoing and we’re playing an active role in the discussions.
Leading housebuilder Redrow’s latest research (Overcoming aversion to apprenticeships) surveys 2,000 parents and school age children and 147 of their own apprentices, throwing into sharp relief a lack of adequate advice on construction careers and apprenticeships in schools. Misperceptions of the range of careers available and what these entail is also rife.
Living in a community continues to be of great importance to people in the UK. Redrow’s latest research report Creating Britain’s new communities finds 87% of people across villages, towns and cities think living in a community is important. However only 25% currently feel they are living in one, and 9% cannot name their neighbours.
