HEATHROW CONTROL POST 24

Amalga’s dynamic labour supply services react at the push of a button to changing onsite needs.

Project

Amalga’s labour supply package to Carey’s offered up a team of workers, to help construct a new security control post.

This may sound like relatively simple work, but at its peak, Amalga was supplying 17 men, encompassing a multitude of skills and disciplines, including machine drivers on 360 tracked excavators above ten tonnes, forward tipping dumper drivers, pipe layers and groundworkers.

Amalga hired out one of its supervisors to direct the team onsite, plus an airside passed minibus and driver to ferry workers onsite from security check points. It’s a step that again, whilst simple, can save countless lost hours and risks.

We also managed some airside traffic and airside road closures on and around the site.

For us, the point is we are capable of offering far more than a standard recruitment agency would be able to do, because we bring bespoke knowledge and expertise to the table. We don’t just provide workers and hope they turn up. We know these people inside out, and our supervisors make sure the job is done right.

Amalga liaised with Careys’ project manager on a daily basis to find out how the project was developing, whether staff were performing satisfactorily and needed changing and whether any new roles needed to be filled.

Half the team we supplied were already working for us on our own projects, so we simply transferred them to this project, as we have airside passed staff ready to go. Any remaining workers he recruits and passes up.

Every single person we send to site has been interviewed by us; we inspect their various qualification and training certificates, passport and right to work in UK documents.

We dismiss and replace those who don’t come up to scratch on site and work tirelessly towards obtaining full airside passes for all of the team

Amalga employed all staff directly on a PAYE basis, 100 per cent compliant with the BAA Industrial Relations Policy. Along with 24/7 service desk support, this approach ensures absolute compliance and peace of mind for Amalga customers.

Amalga were totally on the ball and reacted very quickly to our needs,” says Ryan Stoltz, at Careys. “Those needs were very dynamic and changed almost on a daily basis. Amalga were there to support whenever and wherever we required them. They also provided us a wider support package further to an agency labour service, part of what they call Total Airside Project Support (TAPS),”

Just getting people in place to do a job is only the start. Ensuring that those staff are correctly vetted, and are capable, hard-working individuals makes all the difference. Then, being able to supply all of the support services such as traffic management and site logistics makes a huge difference.

“Such seemingly small differences enabled us to hit deadline profitably and give us the best possible chance of future work from our client,” explains Mick Futcher at Careys. “I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Amalga’s approach. The devil really is in the detail and that’s where they shine.”
