MCG Construction expands popular FastTrack programme to Leeds

Due to the incredible success of MCG Construction’s pilot Fast Track programme in London, the construction recruitment company is rolling out further schemes in the north.

In August the intensive in-house training programme is arriving in Leeds, formulated by MCG Construction’s MD Mark Bull, it is designed to train new starters up to Recruitment Resourcer, Account Manager or Consultant roles in just 8 weeks.

The FastTrack scheme is ideal for those just entering the job market or young people in general, who are known to have borne the brunt of job losses caused by the coronavirus pandemic. It is opening up opportunities to less experienced and young people in a Covid-impacted working world. It’s no secret that young people have been the most affected by Covid redundancies and through this programme MCG Construction aim to quickly set them up on the path to a great career in recruitment.

Mark Bull, said: “We’ve had tremendous success with our first FastTrack intake, it’s incredible what they’ve achieved in such a short period of time. The majority of the intake were brand new to the recruitment world, so this really is an opportunity wide open to those who want to take their first steps into this sector.

“This scheme consolidates 6 months of skills and knowledge acquisition into an intensive 8 week block, thanks to our incredible Trainer Maria Stevens. Maria is working day-to-day with the team setting daily and weekly targets, as well as running the training aspect. Between our 5 FastTrack Team members we’ve already seen them bring in around 190 vacancies and they’re still 2 weeks short of completing the scheme. I’m really pleased to see the great strides the team are taking and very much looking forward to replicating the success of this programme in the north.”

Applications are now open for the Leeds intake from any age group and any level of experience – if you can sell yourself, you will get MCG Construction’s attention. Interviews for the Leeds-based intake begin on Monday 2 August, with the programme scheduled to kick off on 6 September. For further information, or to register visit here.

Based at Marshalls Mill, MCG Construction’s offices are conveniently placed just a short walk from the train station as well as accessible for motorway routes not to mention a variety of cafes, reastaurants and shops. Plans for the Manchester intake are also currently underway, expected to launch in January 2022, key dates to be announced soon.

MCG Construction, part of The MCG Group, provides recruitment solutions to help companies find the best permanent and temporary construction workforce ranging from an urgent temporary site labourer to a permanent civil engineer role.

As a FastTrack Consultant, participants will be given the best training to quickly get up to speed with:

  • Understanding Construction (the language, the role types, the companies we work with etc)
  • Recruitment Sales (how to #begreat at your job)
  • Systems (how to use our systems properly to get the best out of them)
  • Compliance (we strongly believe in providing fully compliant, ethical recruitment)

By the end of the two months, participants are expected to be fully functioning members of the team.
