Lakehouse recruits 10 young people from Greenwich
16 Apr 2012
Lakehouse has recruited 10 new trainees from Royal Borough of Greenwich, as part of its commitment to the communities in which it operates.
As part of the planning agreement for the Equestrian Centre, Lakehouse has agreed to engage local schools and colleges, and recruit local people and trainees. The trainees will spend time on Lakehouse’s Equestrian Centre site, with its newly formed maintenance team as well as on other Greenwich educational sites.
Chief Executive Steve Rawlings said “At a time of record youth unemployment, I am proud that our operational teams are so committed to leaving a legacy in the areas that we work. This is fantastic timing for Lakehouse - we have just secured a long term framework agreement with Royal Borough of Greenwich and we’re expanding our maintenance team, which is based in Greenwich.”
Antoinette Wright, from Royal Borough of Greenwich said: “I am delighted to be working with a company like Lakehouse, which delivers on its promises to support people into work.” Adriano Manaj, one of the new trainees said “I am excited to be gaining valuable site experience on an interesting project in my own neighbourhood.”
