End of the Winter Season

We are happy to announce that the Bromley winter season is officially over!
We have been working in partnership with the London Borough of Bromley for many years now, and part of our work is to ensure that the roads and important pathways are kept clear and safe during the winter period. We must say this year has been a busy one but we are confident we have done everything we can to ensure safe journeys into and around the borough.
Here are some pictures of the London Borough of Bromley gritters in action. Hopefully this will be the last we see of them for a good few months as the summer comes along!

Our Apprentices

16th March 2017

We have had the delight of having our apprentices with O’Rourke Contracting for 6 Months now, and have taken the opportunity to ask them what they think about being an O’Rourke employee. Lilly and Ivan are studying Business Administration at Bexley College whilst doing their apprenticeship with us at O’Rourke Contracting. Their duties include answering phones, scanning, ordering invoices and filling in data for our work order database for our maintenance contract with Bromley Council. They chose to do an apprenticeship to learn in a workplace environment, and have learnt important and useful work and life skills, how to work hard, earn their own money and how to budget.

“The people are great! Colleagues are really supportive of Me and my studies, and I have the opportunity to progress here” – Lilly

“People have faith in my abilities here, and I feel independent having my own job” – Ivan

Furthermore, our third apprentice Rebecca has now been with us for over a year and is progressing her career within the company through the accountancy path – Well done Rebecca!
