Liberty provides local employment boost in Leeds
Liberty’s repairs and maintenance contract with Leeds City Council is making a lasting impact in communities by creating jobs for local people.
The business has worked with the council for the last six years providing gas maintenance and installation services in regions across the city.
It has now been appointed to deliver additional repairs and maintenance services in homes in the area creating new jobs and training opportunities.
Nearly all employees working on the contract, which includes replacing roofs, were recruited from Leeds, including two apprentices who were taken on specifically for the project.
This is a key part of Liberty’s commitment to creating career opportunities for young people.
Tony Moore from Liberty, said: “At Liberty we aim to do more for our clients and the communities in which we work, which is why we recruit locally wherever possible. As a people focussed organisation, we know that his approach makes sense and means that we can add real value as a trusted partner.
“This contract was an opportunity not just to support local jobs in Leeds, but to create apprenticeships to offer young people the chance to develop their careers with us.”
