All Inclusive Approach

David Kelly accepts certificateWe believe in an employment stance that accommodates everyone and discriminates against no-one. We provide superb employment opportunities for all our staff, and we incorporate a comprehensive and fair selection process that gives opportunities to all who are qualified. For those who are are a part of our team, there is a wide scope for advancement, as we are always looking to promote the best and brightest to higher positions within the company. We endeavour to provide meticulous training designed to help them acquire and develop all necessary skills as quickly as possible and to the highest possible standard.


We value diversity as a priority, both within our company and staff and with the work we carry out in our local community. Our impact on our community is very important to us in a number of ways: we want to provide a positive influence whilst lessening the environmental impact we have as a byproduct of our work.

Community Roots

Our partnership with Harrow College is a prime example of our responsibility in the community – we don’t just provide support for budding engineers, we also provide training and employment opportunities for those who benefit most from our work.

Bhavik Makwana recently completed his City and Guilds 6035 Level 3 Diploma in Plumbing, and his performance and dedication meant that he received a full-time training role here at VHL.

A Word from Managing Director, David Kelly

David Kelly, VHL’s managing director said: “Village Heating values the partnership with Harrow College to source students that have gained invaluable experience. Bhavik is an excellent example of a former student with a great attitude and commitment to his progression. There is a real lack of skills and labour experience in the industry at the moment, yet Harrow College produces the right calibre of student to enter the industry to be supported by employers like Village Heating.”

VHL will continue to provide opportunities like these to budding plumbers, electricians and engineers like Bhavik, giving them all the support they need to build a career in the industry.
