15 agencies sign up to alliance

The Building Services Engineering Employment Agency Alliance has attracted 15 members in just over a year.

The alliance was formed by the HVCA in April 2008 with the aim of improving professional standards among employment agencies.

The first annual general meeting of the alliance took place in London earlier this month, where independent chairman Lord O’Neill of Clackmannan welcomed the “collaborative environment” the organisation had created.

He added that, while growth had been modest, he was confident that further labour providers would be convinced of the benefits of signing up, and would be in a position to make the “key commitments” demanded by alliance membership.

Peter Rimmer, head of employment affairs at HVCA added: “Engagement with the Alliance can do a great deal to assist contractors in fine-tuning their policies and strategies in the important areas of vocational training and manpower deployment and development.

“Equally importantly, it allows senior employment agency personnel more fully to understand the short, medium and long-term business requirements of their customer base.”

The AGM culminated in presentation of membership certificates to two new alliance members: Watford-based Fast Track Management Services (London); and Rullion Alltrades of Altrincham, Cheshire.
