Geason win contract to provide Leadership Management Training to Powerday

We are delighted to be one of only two training providers appointed to work with London’s largest Recycling and Waste Management Company in the launch of their Academy to support young people in London 

The Willesden based Company has launched the Powerday Academy with the sole intention of improving future prospects for the youth in local areas by providing them with career opportunities and training.

Our client Powerday launched the new Academy on 17 January 2020, as part of an initiative to deliver training and career opportunities to both current employees and local young individuals leaving school.

As an appointed training provider for the Powerday Academy, Geason will provide opportunities for young apprentices, particularly local school-leavers, to work within a variety of disciplines across its successful business. Our trainers will also offer professional support to those already working at Powerday, helping learn new skills and develop their careers.

Powerday was established in 1980 and operates across London and the South East through its main site in Willesden along with other sites in Wimbledon, Brixton and Enfield. We will be working with the Powerday team to encourage school leavers across all of these locations to enrol in the programme.

Martin Taft, Geason Reginal Business Manager said “As a business employing c. 237 people across London, we are proud to be helping Powerday support the communities they work in. We want the Powerday Academy to provide new opportunities to local residents, particularly those from less advantaged backgrounds with limited employment options.”

“Our role will be to help those looking to start or build a career in finance, sales, logistics, marketing, HR, health and safety, IT or customer services. We hope that those selected to enrol will enjoy long, successful careers within our Company.”

Powerday believes in the importance of supporting and developing local communities, a belief shared by the team at Geason.
