A KEIGHLEY social housing group has launched an ‘employment hub’.

The Incommunities initiative will offer a range of free help and support to adults seeking work.

Advice will cover areas such as searching online jobs sites, writing effective CVs, completing applications, preparing for interviews, careers – including apprenticeship opportunities – and in-work support.

The group’s training team can also help job seekers gain skills and qualifications to assist them into work, through schemes such as free maths and English courses.

And it is trialling a drop-in employment service at the building services logistics building, off Hillam Road, Bradford, on Tuesdays and Thursdays – starting next week – between 1pm and 3pm.

Free advice is also on offer to employers seeking to recruit.

The project is part-funded by the European Structural and Investment Fund and is supported by Bradford Council and the Leeds City Region partnership.

Nicki Woods, Incommunities’ contract manager for the new employment hub, said: “We are really excited to be launching this new one-stop service aimed at helping more local job seekers access jobs and training to boost their employment opportunities.

“We want to help local people improve their skills and become ‘job ready’ to make that right move into work.

“As well as helping unemployed residents, we are keen to work with local employers to find the right recruits that can boost their business.”

Further information can be obtained from the team on 01274 257788 or employment.hub@incommunities.co.uk.

Incommunities, formed in 2003, is one of the largest social housing providers in the UK.
