AN employment team at Golden Gates Housing Trust (GGHT) has helped a person back in to work every day throughout May.
A total of 31 tenants found work with the likes of HM Prison Service (Risley), Arriva Runcorn, American Golf, Travis Perkins, Sofaworks, Maplin, Tesco and Toby Carvery.
Three of those jobs were also gained through GGHT and Warrington Borough Council’s Employer Wage Incentive programme.
Since 2012 the housing trust has helped more than 260 tenants find work through its employment team and weekly job clubs across the borough.
They remain on target to support up to 450 local residents into employment by the end of 2015.
The Wage Incentive scheme was launched by GGHT and WBC in 2013 and offers local voluntary sector organisations and small
to medium sized employers an incentivised package of between £3,000 and £5,000 to provide apprenticeships and jobs with training.
Employment engagement officer Clare Sing said: “I am excited about being able to offer this incentive to local employers. To date it has enabled small businesses to recruit and increase their workforce and productivity and provide valuable job opportunities to Warrington residents.”
