Nick Umfreville, COO of VSS, has signed a training agreement with Jack Friend of Hasman Ltd in June 2018, committing to put all 60 VSS site staff through Hasman’s BESA approved training centre in Liverpool.
Mr. Umfreville said:
VSS has always been focused on providing our customers with the most competent and technically proficient staff, to provide industry leading services for Ventilation Hygiene and fire compliance works. We are proud to commit to place all of our workforce on the new BESA approved competency schemes over the next 24 months.
Natasha Larkin HR Manager for VSS endorsed the commitment made to raising industry standards, adding:
We value the professional development of our staff greatly and this announcement reinforces our commitment to all of our staff, to invest in their skills and knowledge.
Along with this announcement it is also intended that VSS will place 4 existing staff through the first group of candidates for the new BESA Ventilation Hygiene Technician NVQ Level 3, starting in September 2018.
Jack Friend Managing Director of Hasman Ltd welcomed the agreement between the two parties saying:
We have been running the new BESA schemes for nearly 12 months now and this is the largest single agreement we have made to date, but we are welcoming approximately 20 candidates per month now and due to demand we are looking to add new dates to our current offerings. We thank VSS for their commitment to placing their staff on these industry leading competency assessment schemes.
