St Basils Construction Gateway is a free service that maybe able to help with your construction staffing needs.

Are you looking for staff? Apprentices? Trainees? Or could you give the next generations of construction workers the chance to pick up some new skills by offering work experience? Then why not give us a try.

St Basils works with young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, helping over 5000 young people per year across the West Midlands region with specific services in Birmingham, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, the Wyre Forest and Coventry.

For these young people training and employment often proves to be the best way for them to break the 'no home, no job, no home' cycle that homelessness can so easily trap them in and help them get their lives back on track. 

We have lots of keen young people at St Basils with transferable skills, who just need someone to give them a chance. 

If you are looking for staff and interested in what we can offer, then please do not hesitate to get in contact:
