Working with Communities
We are committed to supporting the communities where we work. If you have an idea or suggestion as to how we can support the local community, get in contact with us via MumblesCPS@Knightsbrown.co.uk
EDUCATION & TRAINING
We are committed to creating employment opportunities in the communities in which we work, and we will ensure that we maximise the number of opportunities we provide on this scheme.
Each year we offer opportunities to join our company through graduate positions, work experience, student placements, and apprenticeships, as well as entry level job opportunities on our sites. If you are interested in joining our team then find out more by clicking the link below
Inspiring future generations and showing young people the opportunities open to them is important to us and that's why through our STEM ambassador Cath Waller we undertake educational and career initiatives within schools and youth organisations that help open young people's eyes to the future careers available to them.
We undertake careers and STEM events and promote initiatives such as the I.C.E Bridges to Schools and CCS Ivor Goodsite.
We also work closely with Welsh Universities and Colleges and each year offer work experience and graduate opportunities to young people studying here in Wales. Click the link below to visit our careers webpage and here what some of our recent graduates and placement students think about the opportunities provided by us.
The link below gives you some information from a recent scheme we undertook in Porthcawl, where Dilwyn our very own friendly sea monster brought to life the coastal environment for primary school pupils.
We have an Employer Supported Volunteering policy that gives every employee paid leave each year for volunteering.
Our site teams regularly get involved in volunteer schemes to support local community organisations; we will identify opportunities on this project through direct liaison with community groups to ensure that we make a positive impact within the area we are working.
If you have a project that would benefit from our volunteer support, then please get in contact with us by email:
We work in collaboration with our customers to ensure
the people affected by, or with an interest in, our construction projects receive timely, relevant and accurate information about the works and how the activities associated with it may affect them. We will provide
opportunities for you to give feedback, ask questions and raise issues you may be concerned about.
In all instances, while we are on site, we will have a positive impact on the community and build good relations with local people. This includes meeting our commitments under the
Welsh Governments Community Benefit Guidelines in ensuring social benefits to the area and encouraging the next generation in to a career in construction by connecting
with schools and colleges and offering meaningful employment opportunities.
Grassroots community engagement is important to us at Knights Brown. On each of our projects, we work with local community groups and organisations to find ways that we can make a lasting difference. We support numerous community projects each year through material donations, funding, hands-on experience and general support. We love supporting the areas where we work and are committed to making a difference in the areas where we work.
Please contact us if you have a project idea that may benefit from our support.
We take a responsible and ethical approach to our work and in April 2021, we released our first comprehensive strategy to respond to the climate and nature emergency. We call it Goal 13 in recognition of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, of which Goal 13 is climate action. We've set a clear objective for carbon reduction: To transition to net zero, accelerating progress to significantly reduce carbon emissions by 2030 in line with a science-based target pathway, compensating for residual emissions through potential high-impact climate and nature actions that deliver long-lasting, quality results alongside environmental and social benefits.
Goal 13 also takes into account our broader environmental impacts recognising that the excessive consumption of precious resources contributes to effects such as pollution and the loss of wildlife and wild places, as well as to climate change itself. Our sustainable workplaces plan will help us make positive changes in important areas including reductions in water consumption, waste and single use plastic, building on the existing good practice already taking place in our business.
Each of our divisional offices has established its own local group of Goal 13 champions seeking to effect change locally and improve what we do overall as an organisation. Two of the Mumbles project team, Tracy Beall and Cath Waller, are Goal 13 champions for our Wales & Energy Division.
