Solihull site manager shortlisted for trio of awards

Solihull Editorial 4th May, 2024   0

A CONSTRUCTION worker is hoping to bag a hat trick after being shortlisted for a trio of regional and national awards.

Jake Bishop has been nominated for Emerging Property Person of the Year at the Insider Midlands Residential Property Awards.

The Solihull resident, who works as a site manager for Coventry-headquartered Deeley Construction, has also made it to the final of the UK Construction Week (UKCW) Role Model and Rising Star at the National Federation of Builders (NFB) Construction Awards of Excellence.

Jake joined Deeley Construction as a trainee site manager in 2019 and completed a HNC qualification in 2021. He is now nearing completion of a degree in BSc Construction Management, which he has balanced alongside working as a site manager.

The 29-year-old said: “Being shortlisted for awards isn’t something I ever expected but it is certainly a really proud moment.

“I’m still learning every day, progressing and seeking to improve. Deeley couldn’t have been more invested in me and my development for the last five years.

“I’ve had numerous opportunities to step up and the senior team has had the confidence in me to deliver difficult tasks in challenging circumstances.

“It’s been a brilliant five years and I hope that I have been able to repay the business for the faith they have shown in me. I hope to continue that development and move into project management and contract management roles further down the line in my career.

“It was definitely a surprise to find out I’d been nominated for these awards but I’m looking forward to attending the ceremonies to represent Deeley Construction.”

Deeley Construction has a proud history of supporting the development of young people and trainees.

Chris Newman, operations director for Deeley Construction, also joined the business as a trainee and has mentored Jake over the last five years.

He said: “Jake has developed into an important member of the construction team over the last five years and we are all very impressed in the progress he has made since joining as a trainee.

“He has developed into a well-rounded and skilled site manager, and we look forward to continuing to support his development in the years to come.”
