Workers who have completed electrician or plumbing training courses could be given an employment boost following the news that the first of 11 Olympic Village residential plots has been completed.

As work has begun on each of the remaining plots on the site, 2,800 homes will be created in time for the 2012 Olympic Games, housing athletes during the competition and the public thereafter.

With the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) wanting to leave an impression of high-quality work on the worldwide audience during the games and the internal fit-out of the structures beginning next year, those with approved electrical qualifications could be in more demand than ever.

Dan Labbad, chief executive officer of Lend Lease Europe, the development and construction manager for the site, said: "We remain committed to delivering a world class development of high architectural quality, both as a home for athletes in 2012 and as an iconic sustainable community beyond."

The ODA recently announced that over 7,000 workers were involved in the big build process of the Olympic Village and Olympic Park, with the majority being local residents.
