Transcend welcome new recruits
Lorenzo Angelucci, Managing Director, Transcend Packaging Ltd (Centre) new recruits and Adam Sadler from Caerphilly Council’s Regeneration Team.

Local company Transcend Packaging has welcomed 12 new recruits from local work programmes to join their growing workforce.

The firm located in the heart of Caerphilly, has been working with the council to recruit those involved in work programmes, after they were awarded the contract to supply biodegradable paper straws for Mc Donald’s.
 
Caerphilly Council’s Regeneration Team worked closely with Transcend to conduct interviews with candidates from Communities for Work, Communities for Work Plus, Bridges into Work and Inspire 2 Work. The 12 successful applicants have started a 16 week induction programme on temporary contracts with a view to gaining fulltime and permanent employment in the near future.
 
Caerphilly Council’s Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Economy and Sustainability, Cllr. Sean Morgan, said, “We are working in partnership with businesses and industry across the county borough to seek to increase the availability of quality jobs and identify opportunities to enhance access for residents to those jobs. This is an excellent example of how partnership working can benefit employers and the wider community to boost the economy. It has been a pleasure working with Transcend during this process.” 
 
Lorenzo Angelucci, Managing Director, Transcend Packaging Ltd, said, “We founded Transcend Packaging to help companies become more sustainable across a broad range of products from paper straws to folding cartons. Many members of our Transcend team work and live in the local area and we are proud to be an integral part of this community. Transcend is focused on working with the council to help create quality jobs and provide opportunities for residents to develop valuable work skills that will enhance their careers moving forward. We are proud to call the Caerphilly County Borough home and look forward toward providing more jobs and opportunities here for many years to come.”
 
Caerphilly Council deliver a number of employment programmes to provide support, guidance and training for unemployed residents of the borough as well as offering opportunities for those already in work to increase their employability skills and enable them to progress in their role.
