What About the Future of Roofers?

Hi there gang, lets have a look at what is going on in the world of roofing shall we?

First of, this is a great story here because we definitely need new blood to come into the roofing industry, many kids these days are more interested in I.T and software and things that are computer based which is great, we need those people. But we also need Roofs! And roofs get damaged, need replacing etc etc so we need skilled roofing contractors to take care of these problems, we also need to up our solar panel installation so again, we need the experts for this too so I always like to comment on stories like this.

Two construction firms have benefited from a national scholarship scheme which enables them to take on an apprentice who is entirely funded to work for them for 12 months.

The initiative was launched by construction audit, contract and payroll provider, Hudson Contract, to celebrate its 20th anniversary and also provide opportunities for two young apprentices hoping to take their first steps on the construction career ladder.

To say we need more schemes like this is an understatement! I am very happy to see things like this happening so lets hope we see more of them!

And dont forget peopl that the World Championship for Young Roofers will be taking place very soon, 7 days to be exact! Again it’s always great to see young lads honing their roofing skills.
