The company has been investing in training and development of apprentices, trainees, graduates and the unemployed for many years and has received national recognition for its training provision from Constructing Excellence, the FMB and the CSCS.

We work in partnership with local Group Training Associations, Constructing the Future Lancashire, and other organisations such as Blackpool Buildup and Preston Vocational Centre to provide placements and employment opportunities.

Coming from Blackpool Build Up gave me the basic qualification requirements, and skills, to work on a construction site and also helped me ‘get my foot in the door’ at Conlon Construction. I joined Conlon looking for a job, yet soon realised you become part of the Conlon ‘family’. I now don’t have a job, I have a career.  Matt
