Paul Markwood, Operations Manager at Charter Security, talks about why they chose Barking & Dagenham College and what the experience has been like:

“We work for prestigious clients at flagship construction sites such as the Aquatic Centre on the Olympic Park in Stratford, on the Cutty Sark at Greenwich and at the Blackfriars Bridge redevelopment site in the City. How we manage those customer relationships is extremely important, so when we decided to invest in additional training we chose Barking & Dagenham College because of their excellent track record and flexibility.

“Our on-site teams have been enthusiastic about the training – it’s been good for motivation. It has also been easy to work with the College because they are very keen to come to us. Even if that means out of hours visits to building sites, which isn’t always easy, but they have been very flexible.”
