Case Study – Secured £9,000 of Funding secured for training and a key new hire for Level Systems Limited
Level Systems Limited is a highly successful environmental and occupational hygiene company with clients across the UK. Run for the last 6 years by an experienced team, 2021 saw several changes and the need to focus on future employees and boost resource as the company grows. The owner was keen to continue to develop a highly skilled team and create a culture of collaboration and support where employees are valued and respected.
What We Did
We worked with Kathryn to pull together a people plan in line with business objectives and values. This included succession planning. We supported the business with a restructure, wrote job descriptions, and a recruitment plan to hire directly, saving on agency fees. We supported interviews and attracted over 20 applicants for the role, shortlisting to 3 and identifying several candidates for planned hires in 2022.
We identified one of the Trailblazer Apprenticeship Standard approved by IOSH – the Environmental and Safety Technician Level 3 Qualification, and successfully secured funding for this qualification for the new technician who started on 6th December. We also supported the company to review and update employment contracts, and HR policies and developed a 12-week induction and onboarding plan for new employees.
