Calvalley operates a ‘Local First’ strategy in training and hiring for technical operations and related services. We work actively with the communities in which we operate to create a local economic multiplier effect not only through direct hires but also, importantly, by creating indirect employment opportunities.
We see our community responsibility in terms of a strategic intervention for truly long-term mutual benefit, and so we strive for economic empowerment and sustainable networks.
Thanks to our strong financial position, Calvalley has been able to implement a considerable community program. In line with further investment in existing and potential operations, we expect to extend and expand this in the immediate future.
Making basic resources available as a first priority (eg. fresh water supply in hardship areas),

‘Above and beyond’ commitment to job stability and security for Calvalley employees

We have further committed to rehire the remainder of local workforce as and when our activities in Yemen increase
Calvalley brings a real message of hands-on competence, commitment and better futures to the learners and workforces in our communities because by doing so we invest directly in the future of local people who are going to be providing us services and sustaining our own success in future.
