Social landlord Gloucester City Homes is helping to provide employment and training support for unemployed people.

Working in partnership with Prospect Training Services, the housing provider gave Jerome Moore, 27, an eight-week work placement.

Jerome, who had no previous experience in the field, undertook training for the relevant machinery and processes on a daily basis.

As a result of his hard work, Jerome has now been offered seasonal work contract for Gloucester City Homes.

Jerome said: "I started working with Mark who taught me different skills and then as I became more confident I started to go out working on my own. I am happy with the outcome of the placement and really enjoy it, the staff are friendly and there is a nice atmosphere at GCH."

Kelly Jordan from GCH added: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Prospect Training Services providing opportunities to gain work experience and to ultimately to gain employment. Jerome has proven to be a great asset to the team and we hope to continue to provide work experience opportunities in the future.”
