Lisa Sourbutts, managing director of CUBE HR said, “My first ever HR role was in construction so to now be in a position that we are involved with upskilling the industry feels great.

"This contract is not only committed to the delivery of digital skills and cross trade upskilling, but aims to attract more women, LGBTQ+ community and those from ethnic and minority backgrounds. We've always had equality at the heart of all we do so this project aligns perfectly with our values.”
