Devonport Dockyard Project Case Study | PSI Global
Who Did We Work With?
In January 2021, we started working with KAEFER. The company works in a wide variety of industries, from oil, gas, energy, and pharmaceuticals to mining, marine, and construction. They provide products, systems, solutions, and services for clients around the world.
The Devonport Dockyard project included recruiting for Tank Cleaners, Cleaners, FAFF Operatives, and CSR Operatives. We currently have 30 CSR, Cleaners, Tank Cleaners, and FAFF Operators working on-site. Additionally, PSI employs a local service delivery consultant -Yasmin Lobb – who is based in Plymouth.
What We Did
During the recruitment process, our team worked closely with SeeTec Plus, a company whose aim is to get people into work who have been unemployed long term through their programme, WHP_JETS. For this project, we have relied on referrals from the job centre. These referrals are varied, with a high number coming through due to the number of people who are lost work due to Covid.
Participants in the programme who we recruited for this project were offered training and help to get them ready for the job. If we felt at any point for any reason they had challenges in returning to work, we helped to guide them in the right direction for the help they needed.
Our team has gone above and beyond for this project by not just bringing candidates in for interviews, but in helping with the security process, having someone based in the local area so there is always someone to talk to, and working closely with those who have been out of work to get them the support they needed.
The project has seen positive results, with the main benefit being our assistance to those back into work. The onboarding process ran smoothly, with the workforce appreciating the team having a presence there in Plymouth to offer assistance, something that will continue going forward.
CSR Operative Chris Uren commented that “the whole process, from application to getting started, was excellent. Communication was great and everything was clearly explained in terms of what was required and why.”
