Pre-employment training will take place at the Casepak MRF from 22/10/2012 for 2 weeks. The main programme stakeholders are Casepak, Midas, Smart Solutions and Job Centre Plus. The course will be offered to people on Job seekers allowance and will act as an extended interview for both the candidates and the employers. Early indications are that the courses will improve retention levels on site as candidates gain a much better knowledge of their future role before they start the assignment.
This course has been developed directly with WAMITAB. The course is aimed at raising awareness in the Resource Management Industry and will consequently provide tangible skills to trainees to be attractive to employees in the industry.
The current scheme will be supporting the recruitment drive for the sort line operatives and also an Environment Facilities Co-ordinator for Casepak. Candidates who complete the course will be guaranteed an interview and suitable candidates will be offered a job by the Smart Solutions/ Casepak as appropriate.
