75 permanent jobs created by Ealing recycling contractor

At a time when job losses seem to be making the headlines, the firm responsible for recycling, refuse collection and street cleansing for Ealing Council has created 75 permanent jobs.

May Gurneyacquired previous contractor, ECT recycling last year, and started delivering the recycling, refuse and street cleansing for Ealing Council in November 2008. This February, the company will turn 75 temporary roles into permanent ones.

May Gurney managing director Nicola Peake said that the bold decision to turn 75 temporary roles into permanent ones would mean that staff will be better equipped to deliver a consistent, high quality service for the council and local residents. And they will also benefit from a great training programme.

Peake added that the strong long-term relationship between May Gurney and the council has allowed the firm to turn 75 temporary roles into permanent ones. She said that May Gurney was able to find end markets for the material it collected as prices fell and did not have to stockpile material.

The decision with the council goes against the recent trend of companies cutting jobs in the economic downturn. Peake said that May Gurney was also looking for people who would be interested in taking apprenticeships in environmental services to strengthen our team in Ealing even further. It is also working with charity Tomorrows People to help unemployed people get back into work.
