A member of staff at logistics provider Palletways Scotland, part of Europe’s leading palletised freight network Palletways, has received a service award from a local training agency.
Robert McFarland, warehouse supervisor at Livingston-based Palletways Scotland has received an award from Blackburn Local Employment Scheme (BLES), in recognition of exceptional service and support to the young people of West Lothian and BLES Training. In addition, Robert has been invited to join the company’s board – an offer which he has accepted.
Robert also commented: “The work that BLES do in the area is admirable and they offer a great support system for unemployed young adults looking to build some tangible work experience. I am delighted to be joining their management board and to be more involved in the work they engage in.”
Liz Symington, at BLES Training, added: “Robert has been so enthusiastic and helpful with the mentoring and coaching of our trainees and we are delighted that he will be joining our board very soon.”
BLES is an organisation which helps unemployed young adults find work experience in local companies. Palletways Scotland has been working closely with BLES for several years, giving young adults valuable experience and has since employed five trainees.
