The next chapter for YBF


The next chapter for Yorkshire Builders Federation and EN:Able Futures' executive Mark Scott.

Bringing together Yorkshire companies within the construction industry, the Yorkshire Builders Federation (YBF) already has a rich history going back 34 years, and this year is seeing the next chapter begin! The 29th September saw Ian Billyard, Principal of Leeds College of Building handing over the President’s chain to EN:Able Futures Operations Executive, Mark Scott.

The Yorkshire Builders Federation has close links to the National Federation of Builders and most members are affiliated to both this allows the YBF to have a strong presence within the region.

During Ian’s Presidency, the YBF introduced a bursary scheme to assist new entrants into the industry along with supporting programmes in the region encouraging education and industry to work closer together, such as Skills Village and Forging Futures.

Over the next 2 years Mark plans to continue this work in order to make real inroads into solutions to skills shortages, together with raising the profile of the YBF within the region.

If you want to be part of building futures and business within the Yorkshire region please contact Mark directly on mark@futureworksyorkshire.co.uk or the YBF through David.Todd@builders.org.uk.

As they say in Yorkshire “Ear all, see all, say nowt…” Well in the case of the YBF we “say and do summat”.

We will be sure to keep you updated, so watch this space!
