Cleshar sponsors Apprentice of the Year Award

Cleshar is sponsoring the Apprentice of the Year at the RailStaff Awards 2014.

The company has itself pioneered an ambitious apprenticeship scheme and is also developing a new training academy – scheduled to open early next year.

Cleshar is a UK-based contractor operating in facilities management, maintenance, construction support and capital works with particular expertise where safety critical resources are required.

Says Tom O’Connor, managing director, Rail Media, ‘I am delighted to see Cleshar backing this important award. Apprenticeship schemes are the ink on the blueprints of the future for our industry.
‘We need to attract young people, school leavers and students to build rewarding careers in the rail industry. Encouraging apprentices is the responsibility of us all and Cleshar has certainly shone a light on this growing area of the railway success story.’

Cleshar’s apprenticeship scheme is the cornerstone of a comprehensive training and development programme. It sets the foundation for developing the high standards demanded by Cleshar and customers in establishing workforce competency and ensuring a sustainable future.

Based in North West London and with a dedicated national rail office in Lenham, Kent, Cleshar is constantly on the look out for talented people to join the team.

In the rail industry, Cleshar’s activities span the national rail network, Docklands Light Railway and the London Underground. Cleshar, via its in-house training company, Infrastructure Training Services Ltd, provides hands on support to its own and external contractors in respect of safety and skills training. The company, which has been trading since 1993, celebrated 20 years in the business last year and is looking forward to further expansion.
