(PRWEB UK) 1 April 2013
It has been reported by HVP that thanks to support from Job Centre Plus, the gas giant will be providing 1,4000 17-25 years olds with free training and guaranteed interviews with the company. Successful candidates will be offered one of 1,000 jobs specifically created to help UK homes become more energy efficient. Amongst the roles include helping to install energy saving measures within British households. The project is to take place over the next 3 years.
Managing Director of British Gas New Energy, Clare Williams, describes why British Gas have introduced the training programme.
“Big British companies have a responsibility to make a positive contribution which is why we are taking action to create skilled green jobs in areas of low employment.”
Best known for their Benhilton emergency plumbers, Plumber 24 Hours also specialises in providing Gas engineers to a number of locations throughout the UK. Naturally the team were pleased to hear that more young people are being given the opportunity to forge a career in the gas industry. Martin Smith from Plumber 24 Hours shares his thoughts on the matter.
“It had been reported recently that there was a drop in the number of people entering the plumbing and heating trades, so it’s good to hear that a big firm such as British Gas is doing something about the problem. With the cold spring that we’ve been experiencing, the demand for plumbers and gas specialists has risen dramatically and some people may have found themselves unable to find a suitable plumber or engineer in their area.
“At Plumber 24 Hours we provide workers throughout the country and we’re proud to offer fast response times.”
