At present we have 13 employees who are studying at college and university and this is only set to grow.

“We are in the process of recruiting for a number of new apprentices across various trades who will join the Modern Apprenticeship Scheme when the new academic year starts in August 2015.”

Dr Sam Healy, Programme Director of The 5% Club said, “We’re delighted to welcome Clark Contracts to the initiative. The company’s existing efforts to invest in the next generation are greatly welcomed and together we can strive towards a brighter future for young people in Britain.”
