SUR’s strategy is to maximise local economic and community benefits by leveraging its programme of development activity. It seeks to add value by providing numerous community benefits, which include the use of the local supply chain and contributing to the employment opportunities and education of the local community.
SUR has reached out to over 20,000 young people since the start of its joint venture in Slough – and this number continues to grow. These interactions have ranged from career fair participation and simulated careers guidance activities, to Q&A sessions, site visits, speed networking events, taster days and work experience placements. Through these various initiatives, SUR has helped to support young people in early careers planning and progression pathways, providing them with an insight into the varied and exciting opportunities available across the property and construction industry.
