TC Facilities Management (TCFM) is celebrating placing its 1000th employee with its recruitment partner Remploy. Divisional director, Jeff Lloyd-Jones, will be celebrating with in-store manager, Martin Horvath, at Tesco Canton near Cardiff, where Tarik Miah recently secured a job working as a cleaner.
The partnership with Remploy began over 10 years ago and has seen over 1000 individuals become part of the team. On re-signing the partnership agreement last year, TCFM committed to achieving placing its 1000th candidate through working with the organisation. This milestone took less than nine months to achieve due to candidates soaring on the back of significant contract wins during 2016.
Jeff Lloyd-Jones, whose team has placed more than half of all the candidates in his region, said:
“I am delighted that we’ve achieved this milestone. The candidates placed through Remploy that I have worked with are among some the most talented and committed individuals I’ve had the pleasure to know.”
Rachel Gardiner, head of HR, said: “We’re over the moon to know that we’ve now placed our 1000th candidate through our partnership with Remploy. Not only am I looking forward to the celebration that will be taking place later this month but I am also looking forward to seeing our partnership place even more candidates in to the business as part of our ongoing commitment to provide meaningful employment for people with a disability.”
Gareth Parry, chief executive of Remploy, said: "I'm delighted TCFM has placed its 1000th employee, on the 10th anniversary of our partnership with them. Their commitment and drive to transform the lives of people with a disability or work-limiting health conditions is incredible and they are setting a fine example for other employers. I look forward to the opportunities the next 10 years will bring."
