5 May 2017: Keltbray Group; a UK leading specialist business, which offers engineering, construction, demolition, decommissioning, remediation, rail, environmental services and reinforced concrete frame solutions, Is proud to announce that the company’s Training and Development Director, Holly Price, has been elected second Vice President for the National Federation of Demolition Contractors (NFDC).
Holly will be the Federation’s first female national officer, and was elected at this year’s NFDC 76th annual general meeting after building her reputation with the Federation’s members in her capacity as Vice Chair and later Chair of the Federation’s London and Southern Region, the largest region with more than 60 members.
“It is concerning that fewer than 20 per cent of those working in construction are women. While the number of women is slowly increasing, construction remains one of the most male dominated industries in the UK With the industry at full throttle we need a dynamic and diverse workforce to help deliver it.
“Forecasts suggest that an additional 200,000 jobs will be created in the construction industry over the next five years, and that more than twice that could retire over the same period. It is important that we pull out all the stops and widen the talent pool to tap into the real diversity that exists in this country, both in terms of female and ethnic minority capacity,” says Holly.
