Press Release from Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council
The Grangetown Training and Employment Hub received a very welcome surprise in the shape of a gift voucher for £10,000 from a grateful partner.
Fortum, the Finnish company that will operate the TeesREP have been working with the Hub to recruit 40 staff.
A recent visit from some of Fortum’s senior management took an unexpected turn when Pekka Kokkonen handed over the gift voucher to the Hub’s staff. The money will be used to purchase furniture for the centre.
Gill Sutherland said: “We thought they were coming for an introductory meeting and tour so you can imagine how surprised we were to receive £10,000!
“It was a lovely surprise and a fantastic recognition of the support provided by our team to Fortum.”
The Grangetown Training and Employment Hub, which has helped more than 900 people into work in total, can be contacted on 01642 459035 to discuss career development, training and job seeking.
