Deputy Leader meets Hounslow Highways apprentices


Hounslow Highways currently employs seven environmental services apprentices, two highways apprentices and four business administration apprentices. They all joined between May 2014 and January this year and between them, perform a range of roles including highways maintenance, street cleansing and office administration.


Whilst there, Councillor Mann presented three of the environmental services apprentices (Glenn Pearson, Tom Royle and Tyler Kennedy) with certificates for the completion of their Level 3 NVQ in Environmental Services. The other apprentices are studying for their NVQs in Highways Maintenance and Business Administration respectively and are expected to complete them over the course of this year.


The Deputy Leader also spoke with other members of staff, including University student Asif Huq who is on a year’s placement and James Mulvenna a member of the Ringway Graduate Scheme.


Rob Gillespie, Hounslow Highways Service Director, said: “Investment in young local people is an integral part of our philosophy at Hounslow Highways and we will continue to provide opportunities for school leavers and graduates to ensure they are provided with the appropriate training and experience in order to succeed”. It is wonderful to see how our younger team members can progress quickly with the help of our more experienced employees, all of whom are generous with their time and knowledge.
