POWERDAY KELP CANDIDATE JOINS JOHN SISK AT LDO, WEMBLEY

Powerday has placed a Kotuku Environmental Labour (KELP) candidate, Anthony Hill, on site at John Sisk & Son’s Wembley project, the London Designer Outlet (LDO).

The new development adjacent to Wembley Stadium is part of the Wembley City Regeneration Scheme and features 85 retail units and 15 restaurants.KELP, based in Shepherds Bush, was set up in 2012 to help young unemployed Londoners into long term employment in the waste and construction industries. Powerday has been a supporter of the scheme since its inception, providing onsite training days at its Materials Recycling Facility in Willesden Junction and employing a number of candidates who complete the two week training course.

Powerday has recently been nominated a preferred supplier in London for the international construction company, John Sisk & Son. The recycling and waste management provider is supplying on site waste and logistics staff at LDO, as well as the usual waste management services of providing containers, transportation, recycling and recovery.

Anthony Hill joined John Sisk & Son in July of this year and has already risen through the ranks to the position of Internal Marshall, otherwise known as a Waste Ganger. Anthony’s role includes monitoring and policing the common areas of the LDO to ensure that tenant fit out contractors don’t obstruct access routes with materials or waste.

The LDO contract is being managed by former London Irish captain Bob Casey who joined Powerday as Senior Business Development Manager in 2012. Bob says: “I have really enjoyed making the transition from professional rugby into business with Powerday and developing our service at John Sisk & Son from a waste-away contract to onsite logistics. It is particularly rewarding to be able to give opportunities to help local individuals like Anthony with training and placement on a local development. I am looking forward to working with the John Sisk & Sons team to deliver on this contract and am pleased to have Anthony on the team.”

KELP is looking for more construction companies to support the scheme. If you are interested in getting involved in the project, please contact Andrew Pears.
