About us

Building Greater Exeter is focussed on supporting the construction sector across Exeter, East Devon and Teignbridge to address the skills and recruitment challenges it faces. It has 3 key areas of focus;

  1. Inspire the future workforce through an effective engagement programme with schools and young people,
  2. Support employers by facilitating recruitment to existing vacancies and providing opportunities for up-skilling and re-skilling,
  3. Support the adoption of the National Skills Academy for Construction model using the Client Based Approach, through procurement and planning.

Building Greater Exeter is designed to support the construction sector to meet its skilled labour requirements, now, and in the future. Through your engagement and support you can play your part in shaping the role and activities of the project to enable the sector to grow and be a first class career choice.

Building Greater Exeter will support your organisation to recruit, train and up-skill the people you need. It will also undertake to ensure that the sector is represented at a range of appropriate events – such as careers and jobs fairs – increasing the profile of the sector and the range of opportunities to a wide range of audiences.
