The progression partnership engage with ‘The Prince’s Trust’

The Prince’s Trust is an approachable and diverse organization which values and respects people’s different backgrounds, characteristics, ideas and beliefs. It is responsive to the needs of young people, staff, volunteers, delivery partners and all stakeholders. ASSL worked with the Princes Trust to identify good local candidates, and provided training and mentoring to get them ‘job ready’. Land Securities asked Deploy to support their Tier1 Contractor, Erith, by being the employment engagement provider.

About the project

Kingsgate house is being demolished by Erith to be replaced by 2 new buildings. The public realm will be extended to include an attractive courtyard bordered by office space, new shops & restaurants and 100 prime residential apartments. Demolition started in spring 2012, as part of the larger Victoria Circle redevelopment.

Project challenges

Screening, Interviewing and mentoring the young unskilled operatives and ensure the ‘job ready’ training provided by ASSL is the grounding needed to ensure they sustain employment on the site.
