GSH prepares to train even more engineers for facilities management

To address the skills shortage that is posing a threat to the future of the facilities-management industry, GSH is stepping up its recruitment programme for apprentices. The company already employs 65 apprentices and is planning a substantial increase. Colin Tennent, chief executive of GSH, explains, ‘We know the importance of having skilled and committed engineers on our contracts. It is vital we employ the right people for the right jobs. Our clients expect the very best in delivery and in customer service, and it is our policy to provide those standards every time. ‘Our apprentice programme has a double benefit for us. Not only do we get engineers who are trained to our standards, but we also ensure we have a pool of talent continually available to us. Recruiting externally is not our only option. We can recruit through our own ranks, and, as we all know, with skills shortages presenting a real problem to the industry “growing your own” can be the only viable solution.’ The GSH apprentice programme is open to anyone looking to begin a career in an engineering field of service and maintenance covering electrical, gas, refrigeration and air conditioning, joinery and plumbing.
