Powerday are delighted to launch The Powerday Academy as part of an initiative to deliver specialised training and broad career opportunities to both current employees and local young school leavers.
Working with their chosen training partners, Geason and M.I.T Skills, the Powerday Academy will provide excellent opportunities for young apprentices, particularly local school-leavers, to work and progress within a variety of disciplines across the business.
The Powerday Academy will also offer tailored professional career support and training to existing employees.
Liam Kearney, Chief Financial Officer at Powerday, said: “We are proud of our reputation for supporting the communities we work in through our Powerday Foundation activities. We want the Powerday Academy to provide new and exciting opportunities to local residents, particularly those with limited employment options.”
Edward Crossan, Vice Chairman of Powerday, added: “Through the Powerday Foundation and now the academy, we continually strive to help our local communities with employment opportunities and pastoral services. Powerday believes in giving back to the community, and as a family run business this ethos will continue to be at the heart of the company. The company is keen to sponsor local organisations and support young people by helping them to learn new skills and gain valuable qualifications.”
