Campaign launched to announce availability of local trades jobs

Fortis Property Care has launched a campaign to bridge the gap between supply and demand.and is keen to recruit local tradespeople to join its existing teams.

Dennis Evans, Group Property Care Director explained : “Like most housing associations up and down the country, we have seen a surge in demand for skilled tradespeople.  Due in part to an older, longer living population and a more fluid workforce, we have now launched a campaign to encourage people to join our team.”

As part of this, FPC is running an open evening later this month to encourage applications form local residents into a whole host of trade roles.

The event will take place on Thursday 29 November between 4.00pm and 7.00pm at Warndon Hub, Shap Drive, Worcester WR4 9NX.  Further information can be viewed at

Fortis Living offers employees a complete package of help and support, even before they begin their new role with the company; this ‘life at Fortis’ approach supports their transition into the business.

Dennis concluded : “Attracting and retaining the best, most forward thinking talent is no mean feat for any organisation.  Initiatives such as our open day will, we hope, help to develop a robust and thorough organisation.  We believe in better people who feel as though they belong.”

Fortis Property Care is also at the forefront of encouraging women into construction, as well as supporting apprentices across different trades and organising work placements in a range of departments.

Fortis Property Care was ranked as number 25 in The Worcestershire Growth barometer 2017 which focuses on mid-sized businesses based on turnover growth in the last three years.
