McGinley Support Services Ltd today announces its Rail Apprentice Placement Scheme for young people wanting to secure employment in the rail sector.

McGinley currently engage over three thousand workers and have regular vacancies for new staff.

Sean McGinley said:

“We take a long term view when it comes to helping the rail industry solve its skill shortage issues. There are a number organisations training rail apprentices at present but not all of them are effective at connecting young people with sustainable jobs at the end of their training. We know that the rail sector needs trainees, but to minimise travel and fatigue, we want to ensure that our apprentices live close to real long term work opportunities. With customer support we aim to place apprentices exactly where and when the industry needs them over the coming years. We’ll work with and guide training organisations taking suitable young people on supervised, paid placements with us during their apprenticeships; if they perform well, they will be guaranteed sustainable work through us when their apprenticeship is completed.”

McGinley Support Services Ltd has today released information of the scheme to rail training organisations and is looking to have its first partners up and running by January 2014 with the first placements for young people starting soon after.

We are proud of the teamwork ethic that runs throughout the business as well as the willingness to nurture and train young people coming into our industry. That is exactly what we see in Watford Ladies – great teamwork and a culture of developing new players. We are very excited to see how the ladies and girls will do this season and in the new Women’s Super League 2.’’

Girl’s & Women’s Development Manager, John Salomon added “this is a significant deal for us and we are absolutely delighted that McGinley Support Services, a company who we have worked with for a couple of years now, are linking up with us as our sponsor. One of the biggest challenges girl’s and women’s football faces is bringing in commercial revenue to sustain and grow the sport, so to have secured the support of McGinley Support Services five months ahead of our WSL season kicking off will really support with the future development of our club”

With the ladies set to enter the FA Women’s Super League in March 2014, the McGinley Support Services logo will be printed across the front of the First Team, Reserves and Development Team kits, with the company joining Watford Ladies FC as the main sponsor for the entire Girl’s & Women’s football programme.

Amec’s order book surges

Amec’s Chief Executive Samir Brikho said a record order book of £3.9bn would restart growth. There has been weak demand from the struggling mining industry but this has been offset by growth in the infrastructure areas of oil and gas, renewables and environmental.

Amec have won a contract to build a solar energy project in Las Vegas from Sempra US Gas & Power which is expected to create 300 jobs and generate enough energy for 80,000 US homes.
