Our first Employer Partner of 2022 is…. Hand Contractors!

After a much needed break over Christmas and New Year, our team is diving straight into the action! Today we are making our first partnership announcement for 2022, and it’s with a company that is close to our hearts, because like AccXel they are a new kid on the block. Let us introduce you to Hand Contractors

Hand Contractors was formed in March 2021 by four siblings, who have accrued over 30 years of combined experience in their relative fields; Engineering, Quantity Surveying, Site Operations and Accounting. Despite being less than a year old, Hand Contractors have already garnered an impressive portfolio, securing projects in residential, commercial and industrial sectors. They attribute their stellar first year to their incredibly forward thinking approach and dedication to maintaining the highest levels of health and safety. Their rapid success has seen their team grow exponentially, and they have recently hired their first apprentice.

Having heard all of the buzz around AccXel, Gearard McGurk, the Director of Hand Contracting, reached out to our team to deliver the official training for their newly appointed apprentice. 

Speaking about AccXel, Gearard commented “Choosing to partner with Accxel to train and upskill our workforce was a no brainer. Having visited AccXel’s facility and knowing that they are operated by like minded, forward-thinking people, I believe that they will deliver the highest quality training to ensure our industry is future-proofed. I have been through an apprenticeship programme myself and whilst I believe they can really benefit individuals, I know that current courses in colleges need to be updated and improved. It is truly a breath of fresh air to see that Accxel has all bases covered in all of their training programmes.”

Katie Hathaway, AccXel’s Head of Business & Engagement has commented “We are over the moon that Gearard reached out and has entrusted our team to deliver the training to their newest recruit. We love working alongside all forward-thinking businesses, to help attract, train and retain workers within this incredible industry. Hand Contractors are incredibly close to our hearts as they too are in their formative years and we have no doubt they will be making a huge impact within the industry over the next few years.”
