Celebrating our range of Social Value activities throughout 2015: Day 11
Re:vision, a subsidiary of Procure Plus, exists to help people secure employment – but sometimes, it is the employer who calls for our help in the recruitment process!
Through discussions with several distribution companies, it became apparent that one of the challenges they face is access to qualified LGV drivers – now a highly competitive market. Knowing that this is a highly sought after career option, Re:vision, a subsidiary of Procure Plus, took an innovative approach and on agreement with Bidvest turned the recruitment process on its head!
With the guarantee of well paid LGV positions, Re:vision has supported Bidvest in recruiting 2 trainee drivers. Re:vision has sourced appropriate training for these candidates who are currently working towards gaining their LGV licences. Re:vision funding the course has taken away any financial cost/risk to Bidvest as they will only be employing the candidates at the end of the course, and gives Bidvest the candidates they want with the qualifications they need.
This has also given 2 candidates an incredible opportunity to secure a qualification that will open up a career path that is both well paid and sustainable. Other large employers are now also considering this scheme.
