"SkyBlue continues to support the delivery of employment and training commitments for this project by way of a constant on-site presence and extensive knowledge of recruiting from a wide range of social and demographic groups. The team has been instrumental in recruiting people to work on the build project from within our target post code areas, in particular the challenging priority wards where a high percentage of residents suffer from prolonged generational unemployment and are distanced from the job market.
"In addition, SkyBlue assisted the community regeneration manager and construction team in the development of a framework for a bespoke 10 week up-skill programme. Overall SkyBlue has demonstrated extensive equality and diversity knowledge and their ability to develop and maintain positive customer and worker relationships sets them apart from other recruitment providers."

"Our SkyBlue representative at RAF Waddington runway refurbishment has shown a proactive approach towards site safety. He has been involved in the SAG meetings and made positive contributions, including re issuing sub Standard PPE as soon as it was bought to his attention. Within the SAG meeting Dave contributes to all the matters raised and closes out within the agreed timescales. Dave will continue to be invited to SAG meetings and his input is greatly appreciated."

"We have sourced site labourers from SkyBlue at the Southmead Hospital Bristol project. We have worked closely with their on site manager, Neil James to suit our fluctuating needs, and have been very impressed with the manner our needs have been met.
There have been times when we had a particular issue on site where we urgently needed additional resource at very short notice, and Neil has been able to respond to our requirements. Neil has taken a very proactive approach to our needs and has regularly asked how the operatives were getting on.
"On the whole I would recommend to the industry that SkyBlue are a very professional company, and I would not hesitate to use them again on future projects."

They quickly understood job requirements and peculiarity of the contract becoming great asset to the team. What's more, we received very good feedback from the client who was impressed how quickly they managed to fit in and step into roles in an environment they had never worked in before.Planned Maintenance Contractor in partnership with MODern Housing Solutions
