Eve Livett has been appointed CEO of the Association of Brickwork Contractors.
The Association, which represent Britain’s leading brickwork contractors, has employed Eve Livett to the newly created role – marking the first staff appointment by the Board of Directors since its formation in 2001.
The appointment follows a busy year for The Association and highlights its enthusiasm to lead improvement and direction for the sector. Having developed the first stage of a new training initiative, which facilitates the accreditation of experienced, practicing-bricklayers as NVQ assessors, The Association has now recently won a secondary bid to CITB to launch an Assessment Centre which will serve to improve the efficiency of the industry’s formal on-site assessments, and to further promote the high standards to which member contractors operate.
Livett, who joins the Association with a background in the closely related sector of brick manufacturing, commented: “I’m delighted to join the Association at such an exciting time for the industry. Our members deliver exceptional service and their work across commercial, public and residential, contributes significantly to the quality of our built environment. Our objective is to continue raising the bar in key areas of construction, such as health and safety, education, employment, quality of work and of course, training.”
A new website, due to launch this coming Spring, will provide a valuable point of reference for developers, public bodies and commercial operators seeking to work with established brickwork contractors.
