Just wondered what is the situation with the construction for the Olympics?
A few of my mates fear they will be let go soon enough and were going to apply to Electrical firms in England in the hope of working on the Olympic site.
Has work started yet and if so who should these guys be getting in touch with about getting work?

Any help appreciated thanks

do you specialise in any thing in particular or are you just after general installation work,im fairly sure you will nead 17edition and health and safety certs ,inspection and testing would be a bonus also

I reckon they will struggle. I know of many many firms over here laying people off too so there may well be a glut of sparks.

Yeh! But thats a regional side like Scotland and Wales put in not a club side like England or France puts in?:eek::D

Thats where you are wrong,They use to be a regional,provincial side but are now a fully fledged Professional club just like any club in England or France...And I also think your wrong about Scotland and Wales do they not have clubs like Edinburgh and Newport Gwent Dragons as far as Im aware they are proper clubs playing in a proper league ie The Magners Celtic League
Anyway we are really going off topic here :p

Sorry to interupt the sports chit chat guys, but thought i'd let you know that services are due to start on the stadium in March / April, the main Electrical Contractor won't be looking to seriously increase their labourforce until June / July,

Strong evidence to suggest that the same contractor also has the new westfield shopping centre in Stratford, so they are going to need some serious amounts of labour over there - it's a JIB firm, so Polish will be few and far between.

We're an agency (no abuse please !! we're one of the few honest ones) and we will be supplying the main contractor, if you want to get your interest registered by all means call me on 0844 5763800
