Are you an employer in South Lanarkshire?
In partnership with Connect2 Renewables and our local communities we are helping local people into employment and training by offering full time and part time jobs or work experience places.
We will support you by providing recruits from the area with training, protective clothing or even assist with travel if required.
We may even be able to offer an employment incentive as well as offering advice and support to you as an employer and to your employee.
