Gregor recently made a £2,000 donation to one of its housing association clients, Selwood Housing, which has enabled the tenants to access a new online tool called MyWorkSearch free of charge.
Gregor has worked with Selwood for over four years on boiler upgrades and heating systems, and their contribution towards MyWorkSearch is all thanks to the Silva Social Enterprises Contract Clause. This is a new scheme introduced by Selwood Housing which encourages its suppliers to invest in our tenants and their local communities.
MyWorkSearch will help tenants access their dream job by giving them support services such as creating a CV, monitoring specific employers for vacancies and other training and advice. The system even links up with Universal Jobmatch, the system used by Jobcentre Plus to help people search and apply for work. On average users find a job in 61 days.
A spokesperson for Selwood Housing said; “MyWorkSearch is a really good idea that helps to support the local community in finding a job, and we were delighted that Gregor’s contribution has helped make the service available to our tenants.”
