Getting ready to work

Two Homes for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough partners, the Hyde Group and Clarion Housing Group, are working with Southern Housing Group to help Brighton residents to get ‘work ready’. 

Residents achieved Level 1 Digital and Employment skills, after taking part in a two-week digital and employability skills course. Training was delivered by JobSkilla, a free online platform designed to bridge the gap between unemployed people, funded training and support providers and advisors. 

Attendees took part in group activities, learnt about CV writing, presentation skills and workplace best practice. They were all given the tools needed to succeed in their job search, including a new laptop, a completed CV, covering letter and a personal email address. 

Sarah Willis, Programme Manager, Successful Places, Hyde Foundation, said: “Working with Clarion and Southern Housing has benefited our shared communities and highlights how housing associations can work together to support residents to find meaningful employment.”
