As we muddle our way through these ‘unprecedented times’ the way we deliver our social value programmes has adapted to accommodate our new normal.

Before Covid-19, our social value activities centred around getting into the community; delivering talks in schools, renovating community buildings and embarking on group fundraising activities.

However, due to the need to socially distance, we have tailored our Building Lives activities so they can be delivered digitally.

The first programme to launch is the Willmott Dixon Virtual Work Experience Programme.

Accessed via Speakers for Schools, the programme is aimed at students who want to learn more about careers in management, improve their CV and employability skills and work with other participants on group projects.

This is the first of our national Building Lives programmes that will enable to us to deliver our social value in a fully digital or traditional way (when things return to normal).

To access opportunities from Willmott Dixon and other organisations, school’s need to be signed up to Speakers for Schools. Signing up is free, click here for more.
