Social Value

Westshield is committed to creating lasting social legacies through our projects. The impact of our projects extend far beyond the project boundary, and we look to create tangible benefits for the local communities in which we work.

Our approach to creating social value focuses on:
  • Local spend: Working with local SMEs and using the project spend to benefit local businesses
  • Local employment: Where possible, we will employ local labour
  • Education and upskilling: We have several apprentices who are being trained within the business, and we regularly work with local schools to carry out educational events
  • Community: Creating positive relationships with the community throughout construction.

Committed to equal opportunities, we promote ‘Women in Construction’, engage in apprenticeship schemes and offer work placements. Join our team and you will be trained to develop your skills in line with our best practice and above the levels defined by current legislation.
