About our Training Scheme
The Gas Trainee scheme was developed to address the industry resource challenge, which is to produce more skilled people working in the Gas industry. The objective is to achieve this via a 9-12 month bespoke training programme, at the end of which the Gas Trainees will be fully competent Service Layers.
We also wanted to ensure we recruited from the local areas we work in, attracting applicants from all ethnic and cultural groups, encouraging more females and recognising neurodiversity.
A video using the workforce from across the companies involved was produced & used extensively in the recruitment campaigns this year. The video follows the journey & progression of “real” managers & operatives. https://lnkd.in/eApkK-xx
The training programme consists of a balanced mix of both on & off job training to enable the Gas Trainees to learn the theory of the role & gain competence through on site experience, working alongside & learning from our experienced Gas Engineers. Progress is tracked & regular reviews take place with the Trainees.
This year, to date 17 trainees across 5 Local Delivery Partners working for Morrison Energy Services & Cadent London, have been appointed & plans are already underway to recruit a further 32 trainees in 2023. If the scheme continues along the same growth pattern for the next 5 years, we will have recruited over 160+ trainees into the Gas industry in & around London.
