Red Rooster Lifting signed up to the Young Person’s Guarantee in partnership with Developing the Young Workforce
The Young Person’s Guarantee is a joint commitment to provide opportunities for all 16–24-year-olds in Scotland through jobs, apprenticeships, further and higher education, training programmes and volunteering.
It was important for Red Rooster Lifting to join the Young Person’s Guarantee because we pride ourselves in providing the necessary knowledge and skillset to further develop our young workforce. Helping young people to gain work-based experience and qualifications to pursue a career in the lifting equipment industry.
With the support of DYW Northeast we will continue to work closely with local schools at careers fairs to provide information on the lifting equipment industry and the career opportunities available. Red Rooster Lifting have also worked with NESCOL, Tullos Training and Dudley College in a strategic partnership for many years. The aim of this is to further our apprenticeship programme, allowing us to support young people in education with their understanding and readiness for work. Red Rooster Lifting are committed to providing employment within the industrial manufacturing industry in the Northeast of Scotland.
Managing Director, Bill Aitken said: “We are delighted to announce our commitment to the Young Person’s Guarantee. As an organisation, we pride ourselves on investing time and knowledge in our young people, so they get the best out of their experience, and, feel enthusiastic in pursuing a career in the lifting equipment industry. The Young Person’s Guarantee will make it easier for us to connect with young people.”
