Local Employment & Training
We are committed to supporting many training and local employment schemes, and employ as standard our local labour policy on any contract we undertake. The policy has been developed as a result of many years experience of providing local employment and training opportunities on large social housing refurbishment contracts.
We are working collaboratively with an extensive network of partner organisations to assist the company achieve its aims concerning local labour and training.
Our Local Labour Policy dictates that we establish an environment on site that allows local people to access and importantly sustain employment with the company. This is achieved by purposefully holding open vacancies solely dedicated to locals within the experienced site team.
In addition to the above the company also operates a full apprenticeship programme that is always made available to local people in the areas in which we are working. We continue our work in conjunction with organisations such as The Manchester College and Skill-Solutions to offer specific trade work experience in order for learners to build up NVQ portfolios.
Natalie Mayor has been with us since 2007 when she was recruited as a trainee administrator, as part of our work with local labour in Hattersley. Natalie has excelled in her position, achieving ICT and NVQ qualifications.
Gill Yates was living in a Six Town Housing home in Prestwich in 2009 where we were carrying out a replacement kitchen and bathroom programme. She was recruited as a Resident Liaison Officer for that project and is still working with us today.
