Employment

PDFPrintE-mail

Employees are encouraged to identify further training opportunities which will help them develop within their role or gain promotion. Each employee has their own Personal Development Programme allowing them to continually improve within their current role and establish a progressive career path.

Simmons Services recruitment have been involved in various community employment initiatives such as Fusion 21 and South Liverpool Recruitment to employ local long term unemployed people following an intensive 8 week training programme. This has proved successful and several of these workers have become permanent staff.

We are committed to employing apprentices and take on up to four per year from various sources. All applicants have to pass basic Construction Skills tests to qualify or come through pre-qualification access schemes.

Adult trainees have been recruited through Fusion 21 and several members of our workforce have started as semi-skilled but as we continue to recognise their potential they have progressed from trainees to NVQ qualified trades people. These are typical examples of a business that takes its corporate responsibility seriously and is prepared to demonstrate its commitment to sustainability through the support of local communities.

Simmons Services is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applicants from all demographic groups regardless of race, beliefs, gender and disability.

OUR COMMITMENT TOWARDS EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES
