Managed Services, part of Travis Perkins plc, has joined in with several community projects, and created multiple employment opportunities in Wales.
Managed Services supports the local community around its branches by creating job and apprenticeship opportunities. Osian Craig, aged 17, joined the Managed Services’ Gwynedd branch straight from school, following in his father’s footsteps.
Craig said: “I am still learning something new every day particularly around customer service and operations. During my time on my apprenticeship, I have learnt how important it is to be part of a team and to work together.
“Once I have completed my apprenticeship. I would like to continue to progress my career with Managed Services and Travis Perkins plc and eventually be in charge of my father!”
Managed Services also makes a difference in the local community, supporting various projects, donating money and materials such as the recent £3,000 donation towards new playground equipment for the children’s oncology ward at Gwynedd Hospital in Bangor.
In partnership with Wrexham Council, Managed Services has donated funds towards Plas Pentwyn Community Gardens, and undertaken the renovation works on the Coed Y Poeth Football Academy changing rooms.
Managed Services has also donated materials to a number of housing associations, from Morfa Cadfan in Tywyn to Halton Housing across the border in Chesire, helping to build everything from sheltered housing to community planters.
Stuart Hough, Managed Services managing director, added: “It is fantastic to be able to work with so many different community projects across Wales. We are really looking forward to continuing our work on a wide range of initiatives as well as providing employment and training opportunities.”
