Supporting the industry and creating opportunity
As a business, Hudson Contract has always been proud to support the construction industry and its local community of Bridlington, which is among the most deprived areas in England.
Established in 1996, we have grown to provide construction companies of all sizes, from one-man firms to PLCs, with the UK’s most trusted audit and CIS contract service. Because of our service our clients don’t have to deal with the complexities of the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) allowing them to concentrate on running their business and not worrying about employment or tax status.
We work with 2,500 clients nationwide, engaging over 72,000 subbies in the last tax year.
We continue to be passionate about promoting construction and those who work in it in a positive light. As a result we look to dispel the myths that construction is dirty and dangerous. With modern working practices and tight safety rules a construction site can be as safe as being in a classroom.
We protect and promote the important role that construction plays in the UK economy and moreover want to encourage new blood into the industry to help shape its future.
We believe in creating opportunities for young people to fulfil their potential in towns like Bridlington.
Our chairman explains why we want to help apprentices
We are passionate about ensuring young people have every opportunity to begin a career in construction. We recognised several years ago that there is a real need to develop places for apprentices which is why we created our apprenticeship programme.

Outstanding Contribution to East Riding Award
We have won a prestigious award for our commitment to providing meaningful opportunities for young people in seaside communities through work, sport and the arts.
Our family-owned company won the Outstanding Contribution to the East Riding category in the Hull Business Awards 2020, hosted by BBC presenter Louise Minchin.
The awards celebrated “excellence through adversity” and highlighted stories of resilience, perseverance and performance in a challenging year.
Cross-Industry Construction Apprenticeship Task Force
We are a member of the Cross-Industry Construction Apprenticeship Task Force (CCATF). The CCATF is an initiative designed to increase engagement in apprenticeship training in construction. Its aim is to communicate positive messages to businesses regarding training and apprenticeships and to influence government policy. We have been part of the task force since 2017 and regularly support their events and meetings, allowing us to represent the issues our construction company clients face.
