Council Executive and MP Visit

An open day was organised at the TeesRep site which was attended by Anna Turley and members of Redcar and Cleveland County Council on the 28th April. Presentations were led by David Thorman UK Deputy Director for Tecnicas Reunidas and Ben Ellsworth the CEO of MGT Ltd.

 Following her visit, Ms Turley stated:

“I recently visited the MGT construction site, a huge investment in Teesside and a real statement of confidence in our area and our people. I am really pleased to see MGT have made a firm commitment to use local labour and local supply chain businesses and have signed an agreement with the trade unions to pay national Blue Book (NAECI) rates.

“I am absolutely clear that these are the kind of commitments to local people I want to see from all major projects in our area.”

MGT Funds Routes to Employment Coordinator at Grangetown

MGT in partnership with Redcar and Cleveland Council and FROG (Future Regeneration of Grangetown) have established a Construction Training and Employment Hub in Grangetown.

MGT funded the full time post for a ‘Routes to Employment Coordinator’. Kim Jameson, who was appointed to the post in February 2017, along with an apprentice, will work closely with all the partners to coordinate training and recruitment to maximise the support available to residents.

Kim is based in Grangetown Neighbourhood Centre on Bolckow Road. Grangetown was chosen because of its proximity to MGT's Teessport project and additionally because the Grangetown community has the highest levels of unemployment in the Borough.

Six information sessions were held at the Grangetown Centre in the first two days of opening with over 150 residents attending. Over 600 have now registered with the Centre, which is running construction related courses including fork lift truck, SIA, CSCS, site safety, stand by fire, confined spaces etc.

The Borough’s Working Together Partnership, which includes Routes to Employment, Coast and Country Housing, the four local Job Centres, Redcar College, TTE, People Plus, Triage, APM and Groundworks Trust have thrown their support behind the project and are all attending the centre to engage residents and offer packages of support.

MGT has also been involved in job fairs and subcontractor events in partnership with the contractor for the site, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council and ECI. Other events are planned during the course of 2017.

Thanks to everyone who attended the MGT and Samsung C&T / Técnicas Reunidas presentation last week, kindly organised by Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council and the EIC.

The event was oversubscribed with over 190 attendees. Samsung C&T / Técnicas Reunidas gave presentations aimed at sub-contractors interested in bidding for contracts on the construction of TeesREP, along with details on the pre-qualification process and the timetable for the letting of specific sub-contract packages was provided.

Ben Elsworth, CEO of MGT Teesside and Margie Oliver of Redcar Council were also speakers. Margie highlighted the assistance that the local authorities were able to provide in funding apprenticeships and training & advice on completing tender submissions.
