Chase Taylor Installer Resourcing, providers of contract labour to the fenestration sector, has signed a major partnership with GQA, which will open up opportunities for installers and surveyors across the country.
Under the partnership Chase Taylor will be able to offer installers and surveyors already registered on its books, or others who want to join in the future, access to formal qualifications and potential training through the GQA’s national network of approved centres; and offer clients who are looking to source labour the opportunity to choose from the most skilled and highly qualified resource available.
Announcing the agreement with GQA, Director Paul Lindsay explained “this is a major step forward for us and for the people we work with; absolutely everybody benefits”.
“We can now be confident that our offering to the market is unrivalled. To be able to offer installers and surveyors who are looking for employment opportunities the chance to achieve or to update existing qualifications is a major plus point”.
“We know our clients are looking to engage with labour which is not only skilled through time served working, but which is also qualified, certificated, and fully compliant with all the latest industry requirements”.
“For our clients this new arrangement with GQA will prove to be a really significant development. For them to know that the labour resource we offer them is qualified, or at the very least compliant, is their guarantee of a certain level of quality, and is something they can then offer to their end user customers as a genuine point of differentiation”.
“The fact that we have been able to put this agreement together with the most recognised industry qualifications Awarding Body, GQA, and to be able to offer delivery through their nationwide network of approved centres is the icing on the cake”.
Under the agreement, any installers or surveyors currently registered with Chase Taylor Installer Resourcing will be able to opt to take a recognised industry qualification or join a compliance scheme. Installers and surveyors who want to register with Chase Taylor Installer Resourcing in the future will have the chance to access the same opportunities by being a part of the network”.
Paul continued “it is no different to any other sector, the better qualified the personnel we can offer to our clients, the better it is for us, for them, and for the installer or surveyor themselves”.
“There will come a point when the amount of time a person has served in their trade will no longer be enough by itself. Formal and independent certification will be a pre-requisite. At the end of the day, consumers will demand it, and for the companies delivering to them it will be essential if they want to retain and gain market share”.
GQA Chief Executive Officer Mick Clayton was keen to reinforce the same message “we have been urging the industry for a long time to fully embrace qualifications and certification for installers and surveyors. As Paul says, there will come a point when time served is no longer enough, and we urge the industry to embrace the opportunity to be better qualified and fully compliant right now and continually so in the future.”.
“From our point of view we are delighted to have engaged with Chase Taylor Installer Resourcing. To be able to offer everybody who goes through any of our 80 approved centres the chance to register with a company who can potentially offer them future employment opportunities on the back of their qualification is great news”.
“We wish Chase Taylor Installer Resourcing every success with this venture and we are really excited to be working alongside such a committed and focussed organisation”.
