Creating opportunities in Croydon

Young people aged between 16-24 are always trying to find something to do. Strong Recruitment Group aspire to get even more involved with the local community to create further opportunities for young people in Croydon. Strong Recruitment Group are a leading Construction recruitment provider that specialise in placing professional staff into permanent and contract roles and opportunities in Croydon and throughout the UK.

Due to the shortage of construction skills in the UK many firms are finding it difficult to attract the construction stars of tomorrow. The London borough of Croydon is no different.

“Construction-related employment provided by construction firms in 2018 grew by 55,831 (compared with 2015), with jobs centred around London, the South East and the North West.” Office for National Statistics.

Croydon is expanding massively and becoming a popular location where people come to enjoy the amenities. With Boxpark being opened in 2016, Croydon has already become a go to destination, creating many job opportunities which will benefit the local community. Strong Group have already provided the site managers and other staff to help with the construction of Boxpark. Moving forward, Westfield being one of the biggest shopping mall providers in Europe, is due to begin building in Croydon circa 2019. With the refurbishment of The One Lansdowne and the iconic Nestle building, amongst others Croydon is set to continue to be a well-favoured location for both businesses, residents and visitors.

Strong Recruitment Group are proud to sponsor the Sting (ABC) Amateur Boxing Club based on Surrey street in the heart of Croydon. Located on the vibrant surrey street market, Strong group resume to supply construction training opportunities to Sting ABC members.

Strong group continue to work with a wide range of 3rd party stake holders to assist with the development of the boxing gym facilities, and to provide sign posting opportunities or job opportunities for local young people.

In Croydon there are many young people with wide ranging talents that are seeking careers advice and direction. Opportunities for young people have dropped massively over the past few years. “Total cuts in youth service spending, 2010-2016 £387m.” Unison Local Government.
