This year’s annual CHIC (Central Housing Investment Consortium) Conference saw Laker accept the award of Apprentice of the Year – 1st Runner Up on behalf of Sam Gash.
Sam has been a trainee with Laker for over a year completing 1 days work placement each week as part of his Academy School timetable. Sam has worked across a range of contracts that we deliver as part of the CHIC contractor framework and has been a truly valuable member of the team. Colleagues and Residents are often quick to compliment Sam on his professionalism and politeness so we are thrilled his achievements have been recognised by CHIC.
Our work as a contractor with CHIC delivering the following;
• Responsive Repairs and Maintenance
• Planned Repairs and Maintenance
• Planned Electrical Works
• Planned Kitchen and Bathroom Replacement/Refurbishment
has enabled us to create a number of apprenticeship and trainee positions, this is something we hope to do more of the future, as we know that Social Value is extremely important to CHIC and their members. Our Social Enterprise Laker Gateway CIC also offers an alternative option of building social value into the delivery of the above works through the CHIC Contractor Network.
Thank you again CHIC for recognising Sam’s achievement, and well done Sam. We hope to be at the conference next year with more apprentice nominees.
