Apprentice Breakfast at Nucleus


Today, to celebrate Scottish Apprenticeships Week, McLaughlin & Harvey hosted an Apprentice Breakfast at our King’s Buildings Nucleus project at the University of Edinburgh.

This project is being delivered through the Scape Major Works Framework.

The Nucleus is a new learning and teaching facility in the heart of the King’s Buildings Campus. The four-storey building will create a vibrant, purpose-built hub with space for teaching, learning, studying and social activity.

We held the event in the project’s largest lecture theatre, a space capable of seating 400 students when completed.

Our apprentices joined us on-site for breakfast and met Prof Iain Gordon, the future Head of College of Science and Engineering and Gavin Donoghue, Deputy Director of Stakeholder Relations for the University of Edinburgh. The apprentices spoke about their roles covering site management, quantity surveying and civil engineering.

As a company, we firmly believe in Building Futures, giving young people the chance to shape the world we live in by working with us. Together we can develop their expertise and abilities from the beginning of their careers.

McLaughlin & Harvey are members of the 5% Club, committing to ensuring that 5% of our workforce are apprentices, sponsored students and graduates on sponsored training schemes. For more information on our placements and programmes.

Thanks to social enterprise Edinburgh Food Social for a fantastic breakfast and Blue Sky Photography for capturing the event.
