The programme has been running since June 2013 and we are successfully placing residents into local job opportunities. The types of employment have ranged from School Meal Supervisors to Project Managers. We work with people who may have either recently lost their jobs because of the economic downturn, or people who have a lot of knowledge and practical experience in a chosen field but have never worked.
More than half of the residents are aged between the ages of 19-60 years old therefore not only offers a full active workforce but also offers a good range of consumers. The area also boasts
26 different languages spoken in addition to English. The sheer number of languages spoken – some clients speak on average 3 or more – could hugely contribute to your customer services needs.
Residents also have knowledge of local customs and needs, which can add to your marketing resources – a great investment to your company!
During 2016-17 we have supported 92 local residents into employment and provided 247 with further training.
