Dame Eleanor said: "I was delighted to have the opportunity to meet Kieran, Maisie, Oliver and Simon at the launch of the Federation's ‘Building a Future: Opportunities in Home Building’ report which highlights the diversity of careers paths throughout the industry.

"There is a great demand for the building of new homes right across the country so we need to expand the skilled workforce necessary to meet the demand.

"It is great that the Federation and good firms like Hill are taking training seriously. This provides lots of diverse opportunities for many young people, as well as expanding this vital skilled workforce.”
