We are committed to delivering maximum social impact. We want to ensure that our people and local communities benefit before, during, and after the completion of the projects we work on.
From developing skills for the future, to leaving a lasting legacy in our communities, we seek to make a difference to the lives of the people around us.
We are building a better society through expert, sustainable and ethical construction services.
We run engagement programmes that promote the employment opportunities within our sector and encourage new entrants to start their career with us.
From extensive school engagement and STEM programmes through to our ex-military, women’s and award winning ex-offenders programmes, we ensure there is a clear pathway and programme of support that achieves successful career outcomes.
Empowering Our Workforce
Everyone is on a programme of continuous learning, development, and wellbeing support to enable personal and professional empowerment in their chosen career.
The VGC Academy provides professional development programmes from apprenticeships, technical and vocational programmes through to CMI accredited management programmes and degree and graduate schemes.
Our health and safety programmes alongside our fairness, inclusion, and respect champions create an environment of empowerment and belonging.
Ensuring our local communities maximise the benefits during the construction phase and achieve a legacy after project completion is a key deliverable in all our activities.
Our policy of community engagement and local employment are just some of the ways we achieve this.
Our volunteering scheme, ‘Go Beyond and Give Back’, ensures that our staff have the opportunity to become part of the investment in our community.
Ethical conduct is part of our DNA. We promote ethics and transparency in every aspect of our business.
We have actively taken steps to ensure the eradication of Modern Slavery and have achieved the Ethical Labour Sourcing Standard and the Achilles Ethical Employment Certification.
