PM Training has been awarded a ‘Supplier Excellence’ award at the Douglas Macmillan Hospice Business Partnerships Awards 2019.
PM Training were awarded ‘Supplier Excellence’ for their handyman service which started in 2018. The service involves refitting shops, plumbing, painting and decorating, building and refurbishment.
The service also involves training apprentices who assist with the work while learning important trade skills to further their development and career.
Apprentice, Charlie Key said: “I love being part of the handyman service. I’ve had a lot of great feedback from the families supported and know that our work is having a positive impact in our communities”.
The three-year handyman service is funded by Realise charity, at an estimated cost of £150,000.
Rich Kettrick, Homeworks Contracts Manager at PM Training said: “This award is a great accolade to the team for the work they do. Brian and his apprentice, Charlie, do great work upgrading shops across the city and our partnership with Dougie Mac goes from strength to strength”.
Will Nixon, managing director of PM Training and trustee of Realise charity, added: “This is a fabulous opportunity for our young apprentices to get valuable hands-on experience and guidance, while learning about some of the fantastic things that our hard-working local charities do for the community as a whole. We’re really excited for this partnership and the prospects it holds for the future.”
Pat Killgallon-Birch, area manager for the Douglas Macmillan Hospice, said: “We have 20 shops which are going through a big upgrade. We work with PM Training who are absolutely brilliant. They do all our maintenance and regeneration projects to a very high standard.”
Each year, PM Training supports more than 250 young people into apprenticeships and sustainable employment with additional support from the Realise charity; including employability initiatives and driving lesson support.
