Perthshire Chamber of Commerce awarded to Conor Nisbet of Kilmac a Highly Commended Finalist award in the Apprentice of the Year Category at the Business Star Awards 2014.
Kilmac worked with Perth & Kinross Council on an Apprenticeship Initiative whilst undertaking the South Inch Play Area Improvement Project in 2013. One of the apprentices who took part in the scheme was Conor. Conor worked with nine other young people alongside Kilmac Construction's own workforce to deliver the play park scheme over a 14 week period. The work involved assisting the Kilmac team on all aspects during the upgrade of the South Inch Playpark. The project was successfully completed on time and on budget and has been well received in Perth.
Conor showed from the outset a willing to learn and work with Kilmac staff and the other apprentices on the site. Following the completion of the project, Kilmac were that impressed with Conor that they offered him a full time position with the company.
