Staffline, the recruitment and training group, has announced that from January 2020 its PeoplePlus division will manage the Heathrow Employment and Skills Academy (HESA), supporting Heathrow Airport with implementing its ambitious employment and skills strategy and its commitment to deliver 10,000 apprenticeships by 2030.
The Academy brings together Heathrow Airport, along with its business partners, and providers, local employers, local colleges and community organisations to support a wide range of recruitment and career development activities. It delivers new jobs and aids career progression, supporting the local communities in which it operates and creating a diverse pipeline for employers.
“PeoplePlus has worked closely with Heathrow Airport and members of Team Heathrow in the delivery of apprenticeships since July 2019 and are extremely proud to be part of such a dynamic and committed partnership,” said Chris Pullen, Chief Executive Officer of Staffline. “Heathrow has set out its vision to create a lasting skills legacy and to create up to 40,000 new careers. PeoplePlus’ scale and experience as the UK’s leading independent skills and training provider mean that we are extremely well placed to support these significant commitments.”
