Selco Makes Significant Investment In Staff Development

Selco Rising Stars

Selco Builders Warehouse will mark its 125th anniversary by making a £500,000 investment in the development of its branch colleagues later in 2020.  

The leading builders merchant is inviting people working across its 68 branches to enhance their careers through its ‘Rising Stars’ initiative.  

To mark its landmark anniversary, Selco is hoping to have 125 colleagues enrolled and starting the scheme to complete either a level two, three or four nationally recognised retail qualification in conjunction with its chosen training provider, Interserve Learning & Employment.  

Marc Lucock, HR director at Selco, said: “This is an exciting initiative which will give a high number of branch colleagues the chance to enhance their skillset and leave them well positioned to progress their career with Selco.  

“We are using our Apprenticeship Levy contributions to help fund the Rising Stars scheme and we have selected a course with a high level of practical elements, which means that our colleagues are learning by putting into practice the work they do on a day-to-day basis.  

“We are committed to giving colleagues the chance to create a genuine career path and providing them with the skills, techniques and self-development to do that.

“Timings have been delayed by the Covid-19 crisis but our aim is to get 125 colleagues up and running on the scheme as soon as possible.”

The courses run for between 12 and 18 months and focus on 16 key areas, including customer, financial, leadership, technology, team performance and the environment. Regional classroom sessions will also be held around the country.

Level two will be open for colleagues who aspire to progress to be a supervisor, level three is for colleagues holding a supervisory position who wish to have the opportunity to become a duty manager and level four offers duty and deputy managers the chance to enhance their skills and further develop their knowledge relevant to Selco.
