Part of the national professional organisation, Constructing Excellence, G4C represents the young professional voice of the UK’s built environment industry. Its network currently spans 10 regions across the country and G4C’s aim is to create a platform for young people in the industry to connect, challenge and help shape its future.
This latest industry accolade to be bestowed is the G4C ‘Mentor of the Year’ Award which has been virtually presented to SES’ planning manager, Steve Williams who was nominated by colleagues across the breadth of the Northern region because of his dedication to helping others by sharing his knowledge of planning in the building services sector – a specialism that usually goes unrecognised in construction.
Commenting on this latest industry award win, SES’ business director North and Scotland, Steve Joyce, said:
“Being recognised, whether it is for our innovation, build quality or the calibre of the team we employ, is wonderful and I believe is a clear acknowledgment of our continued commitment to improving our business and the work we do in the built environment.
“I’m delighted to share news of this latest award win and warmly congratulate Steve on being the first to receive such an important award. By sharing his knowledge and experience with others across all levels of the company, not only benefits our business but inevitably as people move around in their career, it benefits the wider industry. I encourage others to adopt a mentoring approach because it is so rewarding.”
Adding his thoughts on the win, Steve Williams said:
“I’m humbled that my mentoring endeavours have been singled out and delighted to receive the award. I believe it’s very important to share knowledge, especially with the next generation of construction professionals, after all they are the future of the industry.”
Earlier this year, trainee Dean Callaghan was ‘Highly Commended’ in G4C’s Yorkshire and Humber Awards in the ‘Trade Apprentice of the Year’ category. Meanwhile, in G4C’s North East awards, which are due to take place in the autumn, Jack Emerson has also been shortlisted in the ‘Trade Apprentice of the Year’ category.
