Build Lanarkshire, the free programme which helps guide local construction businesses on how to build the skills and capacity needed to win work from the public sector and Tier One contractors, is now recruiting for its 2022 programme, which runs from May 4 until June 22.

Run in partnership with North and South Lanarkshire Councils, the programme is conducted by hub South West and comprises eight half-day sessions led by experts in their fields. Topics covered include strategy, leadership and management; team building; digital marketing and social media; tendering & procurement; digital accounting; and cyber security.

To conclude each session, participants get the chance to speak to representatives from a range of Tier One contractors. The Build Lanarkshire programme culminates in an awards ceremony.

Michael Ross, chief executive of hub South West, said, “With this our fifth Build Lanarkshire initiative we are aiming to consolidate the success the programme has already achieved in delivering a broad understanding of the factors needed to win more new, bigger contracts from both Tier One contractors and the public sector. Every ambitious business in Lanarkshire which wants to grow and become more successful will get great rewards from enrolling in this free programme which has already benefited many SMEs across the region.

“This is a very popular programme but there‚Äôs still a few places available. For more information and to apply go to our website,”
