Ganymede Solutions, a subsidiary of RTC Group, is backing the RailStaff Awards at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.
The large venue includes meeting points, casinos, all night bars and restaurants as well as the venue for the RailStaff Awards.
As part of an expanded event, Ganymede Solutions will be sponsoring a special set aside area down in Casino G with practice tables for gaming and giant screens. The area will provide a calm and relaxed space for rail industry professionals to talk and exchange ideas.
‘We are thrilled Ganymede Solutions is backing the RailStaff Awards,’ says Rail Media managing director Tom O’Connor.
‘Their contribution at Casino G will be much appreciated by those of us who need practice and coaching or just a good place for a chat.’
Ganymede Solutions specialises in the supply of blue collar workers and earlier this year won the Network Rail contract for Western and Wessex regions, Wales and the LNE North. This equates to, on average, around 300 to 400 people being deployed on Network Rail infrastructure every day. To meet this demand Ganymede is expanding and has already opened new offices in Doncaster and Portsmouth.
Ganymede Solutions is establishing an apprenticeship programme which will create around 36 apprenticeships a year with help from training partners Arc Academy. The strategy will allow it to address specific regional skills shortages. In Plymouth, for example, it plans to build up a reservoir of skilled railway workers by targeted recruitment and training.
