Hays tackles worklessness

The Government has previously urged housing providers to do much more in tackling worklessness and has made it clear that approaches that bring together housing, training and employment should be the rule, rather than the exception.

To assist housing providers with this challenge, Hays has developed a job seeking skills training service to offer tenants and residents the opportunity to develop the key skills required to find a job whilst boosting their confidence and self-esteem.  So far we have achieved a success rate of 45% of attendees achieving full-time employment following our programmes:

"This programme has really opened things up for me, the first step towards getting a job.  It has built my confidence and shown me what I can do! The workshops were so valuable - for the first time I got to see things from the employers point of view"

Our coaches offer practical and relevant advice on career choices and entry routes based on the market intelligence provided by our network of recruitment consultants across the UK. Working both one-to-one and in groups, we are able to assess the preferences of individuals, helping them to define their transferable skills whilst offering career guidance in providing a competitive edge in today’s difficult marketplace.

"Very comprehensive and has really built my confidence.  A great programme to help you get back into work"
