As a national business that works with a growing number of clients across the UK each year we have an on-going national recruitment programme which aims to grow our staff numbers and replace staff who progress within the company.
We recognise the value of a sustainable career for people across the UK and Lucion are proud to offer employment positions to anyone who has a hardworking and conscientious attitude regardless of their background or current employment status. Therefore, for our Sustainability Improvement Plan 2017 to 2022 we have launched a national recruitment programme that aims to fill 33% of job vacancies from candidates in the Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET) category every year.
New trainees are enrolled onto our Lucion Skills Academy programme where they partner with more senior members of staff to gain experience of site works and undergo a comprehensive training and audit schedule which completes with them obtaining British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) qualifications in asbestos inspection and analytical disciplines. This provides previously unskilled employees with a structured 6-12 month programme that ends with them gaining the skills and competency to progress in a number of directions within the company if they choose to.
As a business we also have an incentive to employ local people as this ensures we deliver a more efficient and reliable service for our clients. Putting this into practice we have carried out local recruitment programmes in partnership with our clients in the local government and housing sectors where we advertise directly to tenants and in local job centres.
