More Diversity in the Built Environment Industries
As part of our push to encourage more diversity in the Built Environment industries, we have been working closely with the team from the Paradigm Network to help us with our recent recruitment process.
The Paradigm Network exists to support, encourage, and help talent from BAME backgrounds to develop their career in the built environment industries through education, knowledge sharing and best practice.
Tara Gbolade, who is part of the organising committee, said: “Paradigm have been incredibly pleased and excited about the pro-active involvement with the Brick By Brick team who were keen to add to their burgeoning team from our excellent pool of talent. After they approached Paradigm, we were active in encouraging the right people to apply for the available roles, knowing that our members would prove a great asset to this award-winning team. They were so impressed with our very own Akin Lisk-Carew that they offered him the role of Assistant Development Manager!”
Our CEO, Colm Lacey said: “We are very keen to actively encourage applications from under-represented groups for all roles in BBB in whatever practical ways we can. Our organisation is growing quickly, and working with the Paradigm Network has been absolutely invaluable in helping us to find talented new staff in a number of areas”.
Akin joins Brick By Brick at a very exciting time as we launch our new Brick By Brick sales shop on George Street in Central Croydon and our first schemes in Upper Norwood start to complete. We’re excited to have a new addition to the team and to encourage diversity in the Built Environment industries.
