Reviews

Social Enterprise in the Construction Industry is a timely and accessible book on the vital subject of how to create new opportunities in a restricted jobs market.

As CEO of Australia's peak body for employment services, I know how tough it can be to get people into sustainable employment. Social enterprises represent truly innovative possibilities to create jobs, and this book takes those endeavours to the next level by showing us how partners and resources can be combined to build a line of sight to real jobs in the construction industry. Social Enterprise in the Construction Industry draws on research and the rich experience of social enterprise developers working in this field. It is an authoritative guide for those contemplating a social enterprise, as well as being a great resource for anyone interested in how we can tackle unemployment in new ways. Sally Sinclair, CEO, National Employment Services Association, Australia BoysTown in Australia's largest youth charity. On countless occasions, following a period of paid employment in social enterprises, I have watched people's personal growth as they develop the workplace skills and behaviours that enable them to obtain and retain employment in the open market. Building on the authors understanding of the construction industry and of social enterprise, Social Enterprise in the Construction Industry explains why and how social enterprises make good commercial sense and how they benefit the wider community. This is a valuable and important book that I recommend and which in my opinion deserves a wide readership. John Perry, General Manager - Employment, Education and Training, BoysTown, Australia
