Promoting talent from within is a cornerstone of our success. We are proud of the many people at SQS who have progressed from front line operational or junior office roles to become managers.

Recognising the additional skills that are needed in managerial roles we have worked with industry consultant Thomas Enright Associates Ltd to develop an in-house bespoke training programme for our first-time managers.

Our TOOLS 2 MANAGER programme complements our structured NVQ programme, and particularly focuses on the communication, coaching and performance management skills required by managers.

The first cohort of 16 managers completed their stage 1 modules in December and have provided great feedback.

Comments included:

“Simple to understand and made easy to apply within my job”, “Excellent supporting materials that I can use and return to when needed”, “Great interactive exercises that helped get everyone involved”.

HR Advisor Donna Cossins commented:

“Great course that helps with the issues that arise. Good presentations that were well delivered by a calm and knowledgeable trainer”.

Transport Manager Eugen Iliuta said:

“I really enjoyed the Tools 2 Manager training, especially learning alongside other managers from across the business”.
