North West

G4C North West is one of the newer regional groups and has been rapidly gathering momentum as the North West’s young professional voice of the UK built environment agency. We are open to anyone with an interest in joining the industry, or in their early stages of their career in the built environment sector. We run a series of events throughout the year, both with a social and educational focus. We are currently working towards hosting the inaugural G4C North West Awards in Spring 2020.

North West Chair – Jack Cook

I joined the industry straight from leaving school when I was 16 and undertook a joinery apprenticeship with F.Parkinson Ltd. After completing my joinery apprenticeship, I continued to work on site while undertaking an HNC in construction. After completing my HNC I was afforded the opportunity, to take on a new role working as a trainee estimator in the Manchester office. After completing an internal training plan, I was successfully promoted to my current role as construction estimator working for the same company I started with back when I was 16. What an journey!

I joined G4C because I feel our industry and especially the apprenticeship route is undervalued as a whole and I wanted to join the Generation For Change campaign to give the next generation a voice and showcase how wonderful our industry is. In my role as the chair I hope to try and engage with as many people as possible in the North West and hopefully showcase how important the next generation is to the future of our industry.

In my spare time I am a massive football and Bolton Wanderers fan and I enjoy attending the matches with my Dad. I also love engaging and socialising with friends and the G4C family.

Please contact me anytime if you have any questions or if you would like to get involved with G4C in the North West – @G4CNW & @jcook95
