Husqvarna is keen to continue supporting and growing skills in the UK and recognises the opportunity The Skills Show presents to provide inspiration for the 75,000 young people and visitors expected to attend the show. In addition to providing an ideal platform for the company to reinforce its position as a market leader and supporter of vocational skills, the organisation’s presence at the event will also present the chance to discuss career development opportunities with the next generation of skilled professionals.

Chief Executive of The Skills Show, Ross Maloney is excited about the opportunities which this new agreement presents: “As a sponsor, Husqvarna will engage, inform and inspire the talent of tomorrow and will have the opportunity to interact with and inform key influencers including teachers, careers professionals, parents and employers. Not only will it have a fantastic opportunity to promote its brand, but Husqvarna will be able to position itself at the heart of skills, vocational training and apprenticeships.”

Ross continued, “The Skills Show, sponsored by City & Guilds, Edge Foundation and Premier Colleges, is one of the few opportunities in the UK, where businesses like Husqvarna can engage with this audience and demonstrate its commitment to the development of a skilled workforce in the coming years. We are delighted to welcome Husqvarna on board for this year’s event, and look forward to working with its team this year and in the future to help more young people discover their potential and embrace their skills.”

Colin Adams, Commercial Director of Husqvarna Construction UK, commented:
"It is important for us to support the industry that we are serving and help boost skills in the UK. The Skills Show aims to change the perception of skills, training and apprenticeships, which are fundamental for the local economy and the construction industry. By supporting The Skills Show we can show future contractors the type of machinery that they could be using and hope to inspire them to further a career in the industry."
