Local recruiters paint the council

Last week, local professionals from Hays Construction, the leading recruiting expert, transformed the ground floor corridor at Reading council's Bennet Road building. The Hays consultants, Mark Stratton and Jamie Ruddock, volunteered their time and gave up a day to lend a hand to their local Council

Hays Construction is one of Reading Borough Council's preferred suppliers and works alongside the Council on various schemes.

Mark Stratton, Office Manager at Hays Construction, says: "We are proud to have completed this project and helped transform the corridor. We hope this improves everyone's working environment. We look forward to working on similar projects in the near future."

Deborah Edwards, Lead Councillor for Reading Borough Council, said: "We would like to thank Hays for transforming the ground floor corridor at 19 Bennet Rd. It has changed the look and feel and given everybody here a real boost. Hopefully this will further enhance our partnership which has already seen improvements such as health and safety inductions and enhanced site safety working practices."
