Training group parts company with operations manager.
DemolitionNews understands that Martin Morrell, the operations manager of the National Demolition Training Group (NDTG), has left the training group.
In a cryptic message posted on his LinkedIn profile page, Morrell said that he was “looking for a new challenge”. In a brief conversation, Morrell confined that he had parted company with the NDTG, citing the fact that the Hemel Hempstead base is a long way from his home in Norfolk.
Regardless of the circumstances, Morrell’s departure will be a loss. Although he was in his post for approximately one year, Morrell brought with him an enormous amount of experience, knowledge of the demolition industry’s specific training requirements, and – just as importantly – an in-depth knowledge of industry training regimes having previously worked alongside the NDTG as a training group support co-ordinator at ConstructionSkills.
The timing of his departure is equally unfortunate. The National Demolition Training Group is actively seeking to manage and administer its own industry-specific training card scheme, a process that would have benefitted from Morrell’s extensive experience.
