Current Employment Status – Carillion Training Services/RPS
I joined TIGERS in July 2014 to do a construction course. They helped me to understand employability skills, learn how to write a CV, how to apply for jobs and lots of other skills. I was also put through my CSCS training and test, which I passed. After TIGERS I successfully gained a Modern Apprenticeship with Carillion as a General Construction Operative, through this Apprenticeship I have learned how construction sites work and all the Health and Safety aspects that comes with it.
I am working towards a GCO Modern Apprenticeship Level 2 and I have completed lots of construction training, I have worked at Cambuslang Rangers and Yoker Football Club doing concrete pours to help get the teams stands ready for their new season which I thoroughly enjoyed.
In November 2014 I was taken on a work placement with RPS Group for a 6 week trail and was successful. I have been all over Scotland with RPS, they put me through lots of additional courses such as Water Hygiene, DOMS and Street Works courses. I am now fully qualified to flush water mains, do valve operations, water sampling, fitting checks on valves and fire hydrants. I am looking to secure full time employment with RPS after I have completed my Apprenticeship which I hope will be the case. I would recommend TIGERS to anyone as long as you turn up every day and give your best.
