New job club helps residents train for success
Published by Alliance Homes for Alliance Homes in Communities and also in Education
There is now help for Alliance Homes residents who are currently unemployed or looking for a new career. The recently launched Alliance Homes Job Club will let residents know about new training, apprenticeship and employment opportunities as soon as they are released.
Alliance Homes is working closely with partnership organisations such as westonworks in Weston-super-Mare, Weston College and Learn Direct to offer residents the chance to learn about job searching, CV writing, filling in job application forms and interview techniques. By registering with the Alliance Homes Job Club, residents will get regular alerts on new vacancies and training programmes.
Kerrie Filer is just one person who has been able to get invaluable work experience through Alliance Homes. She joined the social enterprise as an apprentice, and says of her experience: "Starting my apprenticeship was great as I had no previous experience in administration work so it gave me the opportunity to start something new and gain a qualification at the end of it."
Michael Williams, Business Enterprise Manager at Alliance Homes, says: "From the feedback we get from residents, we know there is a real need for a service like this. In this tough economic climate, finding work can be an uphill struggle, especially if extra training is required. We want to help people get the confidence and the skills to get back into work."
Interested residents can call Alliance Homes on 03000 120 120 or email email@example.com to find out more and register with the job club.
