In partnership with non-for-profit training provider SYC, we are currently delivering Build Your Career - a ten-week program that aims to provide the skills and training to prepare our customers for job opportunities with builders and contractors.
These job opportunities a form part of our social procurement efforts within our Better Neighbourhood, maintenance and new build contracts.
Currently in week five of the program, 14 participants are on their way to completing their Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways whilst undertaking refurbishment work (alongside our multi trade contractor Programmed Facility Management) on one of our public housing properties in Brompton. This work includes carpentry, tiling, painting, plastering and flooring upgrades.
Participants are meeting with Authority contractors throughout the program to begin transition into employment opportunities following graduation including apprenticeships.
If you know a customer that might be interested in gaining employment in the building and construction industry, please get in contact with the Melissa De Leo at Melissa.firstname.lastname@example.org.
