Chevron TM | Award for ‘Fairness, Inclusion and Respect’ at the Taylor Woodrow Supply Chain Awards 2018
Chevron, awarded for ‘Fairness Inclusion and Respect’ have succeeded in identifying capacity/skills gaps and then using employment and development solutions to deliver a skilled, sustainable, diverse workforce, both within their business and their supply chain.
Chevron’s commitment to this has seen the appointment of a dedicated national Resourcing & Development Team into the business who are committed to supporting local communities through sustainable recruitment initiatives:
Recruitment of ex-Military personnel– Chevron have been actively working with BFRS (British Forces Re-Settlement Services) since 2015, attending 5 careers fairs per year. This relationship has resulted in the recruitment of more than 35 trainees, many of which have now become qualified operatives and an integral part of the Chevron team.
Recruitment of ex-offenders– Following a successful award-winning collaboration with Chance 2013 Ltd, Chevron have built upon their work with ex-offenders across the UK and now partner with Novus, presenting directly in prisons to those coming to the end of their terms and discuss potential career opportunities in 1-2-1 sessions with inmates.
National Careers Fairs– Chevron are active with their attendance at regional careers events, particularly in their hot-spot/skill-shortage areas. They recently attended the `Centre MK Job Show’ earlier this year, which has resulted in new recruits in to their Tring and Thatcham depots.
Facebook Campaign, Trainees– Chevron identified a shortage of new Trainee applicants into their Southern Depots and decided to create a fresh campaign, including web adverts to target their Trainee opportunities in the South.
Early Careers– Chevron have created an `Apprenticeship Roadmap’, which will see a focus on their mid-management, and support employees through level 3, 4 and 5 Apprenticeship schemes.
As Lantra qualifications are currently out-of-scope for Levy access, initial focus is on increasing the skill-set of existing employees via access to work-based learning to increase knowledge in areas including project management, operational delivery, learning & development, HR support, business administration and customer service.
Chevron are pleased to have recently recruited a HR & Early Careers Apprentice and Marketing Apprentice into the business.
