Hudson Contract’s Apprenticeship Scheme has earned national recognition. We are delighted to report that we were a runner-up in the Best Construction Supplier to Work With category at this week’s Construction Enquirer Awards.
“This means the world to us,” says Hudson Contract Founder and Chairman David Jackson. “First and foremost, it acknowledges and celebrates the success – and growth – of a project that started almost by accident, when we realised how difficult it was for local youngsters to get the help and financial support they need to enter the construction industry. It’s also wonderful to have been nominated as a favourite supplier to work with.”
The Construction Enquirer Awards Ceremony took place this week at the VOX Centre in Birmingham as part of the UK Construction Week Trade Show. Now in their second year, the awards are voted for by the industry. The evening was hosted by architect and TV personality George Clarke and saw construction firms and suppliers from all sectors get together and celebrate all that is good with the industry.

Hudson Contract’s nomination recognises that over the past six years, our Apprenticeship Scheme has grown and flourished to the point where we have just agreed to sponsor our 100th apprentice. “It has been extremely satisfying to watch these youngsters learn their trades and gain the skills and confidence they need to contribute to the construction industry,” David Jackson says. “They are its future . . . and who knows how many of them will go on to start their own businesses, creating jobs and value in the future. We are proud to have given each and every one of them their start in construction.”
