A Helping Hand On Jobs and Skills

Written By elderpark_fiona

Tenants of Elderpark Housing are in line for a jobs and skills boost thanks to a trail-blazing employment link-up.

Elderpark Housing and “Jobs & Business Glasgow” have teamed up to bring a helping hand to residents keen to find work or get assistance on learning new skills.

Now our tenants are being encouraged to take advantage of the free service which is a first for the housing association.

Jonathan Giddings-Reid, our Community Regeneration Officer, explained: “We are delighted to have linked up with Jobs & Business Glasgow to deliver real help for people in search of work or who want to learn new skills or access training.

“We share the vision of Jobs & Business Glasgow of encouraging our tenants to find a job, move into employment of their choice or obtain new skills. It is also a further example of us doing our bit to help our tenants in whatever ways we can.”

Jobs & Business Glasgow delivers one to one support in partner organisations across the city. Its core mission is to support Glasgow residents to move into work, to take part in training and to start up in business

Its “Employability Advisors” assist with the creation and development of CVs, the completion of application forms, job searching and preparation for interviews. Staff also work directly with employers to help secure opportunities for our customers.

Gary Dalziel, Chief Executive of Elderpark Housing said: “This partnership is a welcome development for our community. Many people face challenges in finding employment due to a range of factors such as lack of experience and in many cases childcare commitments.

“With further concerns in the rising cost of living, this link-up will provide tenants with the support they need to overcome these challenges and find meaningful employment.”

A Jobs & Business Employment Advisor will be based in our offices in Golspie Street.

The partnership will also provide tenants with access to a range of other support services such as childcare and travel assistance and can even help with obtaining an interview outfit.

Elderpark tenants can access support from Jobs & Business Glasgow by calling the Customer Service Team to register interest or arrange an appointment on:
