Careers in Construction Month

Niblock are passionate about shaping the future of the construction industry. To support Careers in Construction Month, our Social Value Executive, Jodie Pitt, has been on a mission to inspire and empower young minds in secondary schools across London Boroughs.
Partnering with the Construction Youth Trust, Jodie volunteered to support engaging sessions, including:
📚 “How To Be a Professional”
📝 CV Writing Workshops
🤝 Exploring Transferable Skills
🎙️ Mock Interviews
🛠️ Navigating Apprenticeship Applications
The enthusiasm and curiosity of the students was great to see. They often asked Jodie, “What made you want to work in construction industry?” and by the end of each session, they left with newfound knowledge that can shape their career journeys.

“It was fantastic to have Jodie attend our session and provide insight on the construction and built environment sector, the students were particularly interested in hearing about the apprenticeships available at Niblock. During the session Jodie also supported the students with an activity encouraging them to look at the transferrable skills! Thank you for all of your support, it was fantastic to have you along !”- Holly Fanshawe, Senior Programme Manager at CYT.

“It was such a pleasure to welcome Jodie to the Year 11 “CV surgery with an employer” at Jo Richardson school. The students really appreciated her appraisal of their CV’s and absolutely took on board her invaluable advice. They were especially interested in hearing about the apprenticeships available at Niblock! Jodie, we really appreciate you! Thank you for your unwavering support.”- Wendy Heller, Senior Construction Skills Manager at CYT.

Mental Health Awareness Training

Today is World Mental Health Day! 
To better understand what we as a business can do to improve our policies surrounding mental health, we took part in an interactive and engaging Mental Health Training Session hosted by Mates in Mind Charity and Peter Kelly this morning focusing on mental health in the Construction Industry in the ‘eye of the storm’ – post covid pandemic and during the cost of living crisis.

Discussions focused on how to make our strategies preventative rather than simply reactive and what we can do to further break down the stigma surrounding poor mental health. We also discussed how psychosocial risk factors are directly related to the frequency of accidents in the workplace and the importance of managing these to improve health and safety on Construction Sites.

Questions included:

🌟 How can we create a healthy workplace?
🌟 How can we control psychological risks at work?
🌟 How can we shift the emphasis to encourage men to talk about their mental health?
🌟 How can we better express ourselves and show compassion in response to a colleague conversing about their mental health?
A clear message we took away from the session: instead of simply supporting poor mental health and wellbeing, we need to optimise mental health and well being. #Thriving and not just #surviving.

Fresh Visions Cheque Presentation

We were delighted to present Fresh Visions Charity with a cheque for £5000, following our fundraising sky dive last month!

In August, our fantastic team took to the skies and conquered their fears to raise money for Fresh Visions, which is the charitable arm of Southern Housing. The Charity supports children and young adults who face extreme disadvantage, providing them with a platform to develop the confidence and skill set to turn their lives around.

We are incredibly grateful to our team for taking on such an impressive challenge and would like to thank everyone who kindly donated to sponsor them!

Bake Off is Back!

On Friday 29th September 2023, we are taking part in Macmillan Coffee Morning with our annual Bake Off at head office, raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support. 
For the 7th year running, the Niblock team will be joining in with competitive spirit and baking their best savoury and sweet goods to fundraise and help the Charity continue their very important work. 

Maddie Rose

We are going Yellow for Maddie Rose! 💛

Today is Maddie’s Day! The campaign began in 2022 in celebration of the life and work of Maddie Rose, an inspiring young woman who was dedicated to showcasing the wide range of aspirational careers available within the Construction industry.

We are supporting the initiative by going yellow and adopting the Maddie Rose campaign logo for the day, helping to further raise awareness and inspire young people to build a career in the sector.

Denim for Dementia

The Niblock head office team showed up in their denims today for our first ever Denim for Dementia event to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society on #WorldAlzheimersDay!

The donations will directly aid the Charity with their research into the cause, cure, care and prevention of Dementia.

Taking to the Skies!

Niblock’s Sky Dive!

Oakwood Court

All works at Oakwood Court Care Home in Amberley Close, Haywards Heath, have progressed to programme, including the ‘no dig’ construction car park which ensures root protection to the surrounding trees.

Niblock Charity Skydive

On Sunday 6th August, a group of seven brave employees from Niblock Building Contractors are reaching new heights and taking part in a sky dive at The Aerodrome in Ashford to raise money for Fresh Visions.
Fresh Visions Charity supports children, young people and adults predominantly in Kent, Sussex, South London and the Midlands, who face extreme disadvantage as a result of poverty, domestic abuse, a lack of education and social exclusion. Fresh Visions’ projects help them to achieve their potential through developing their confidence, motivation and skillset, with the aim of building brighter futures.
In the last 24 months alone, they have engaged with and supported 980 people across their programmes. 60% of whom are female, and 64% are from BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) backgrounds.
Please help support the Charity continue their fantastic work by donating on our Just Giving page:
You are also welcome to join us on the day and cheer the team on!
