“We also provide work placements for students studying Quantity Surveying and Construction Management, allowing them to develop and enhance their practical skills, supporting the modules taught at University.”

Clark Contracts is committed to training and development of staff and has recently joined the 5% Club, a UK wide movement encouraging the recruitment of apprentices, graduates and sponsored students.
