This is a photo of Andrii Bilookyi (on the left) receiving his NVQ level 2 in steel fixing certificate from me.
Andrii works with me on the Morgan Sindall job building the new substation for the National Grid at Bustleholm in Derbyshire. He is a chargehand steelfixer, and he has worked for VGC for about two years.
We’ve been here since the area was just fields before we started; then Andrii moved to Capenhurst to work on a TMF (tail management facility) nuclear storage facility for Jacobs and Kier for a while. Then he came back here for phase 2. Our client, Morgan Sindall, asked to have him back – he’s that good – and asked if we could arrange his NVQ.
Julie Norris in HR kindly sorted out all the paperwork. Usually an NVQ takes about six months, but he was really proactive and worked very hard: he started in January and did his final assessment in March. (We have a contract with Bam Nuttall for NVQ assessments.)
Andrii is really good at his job – give him the drawings and he’ll just build it; job done, no questions asked. You don’t have to worry about it. So he’s really good to work with and I was proud to give him his certificate.
