Join our Team

The pandemic hit the employment market hard, and as a result, many lost their jobs or were placed on temporary or low hour contracts.

To support Glasgow City Council residents, we created 26 week paid employment programmes to provide opportunity to start in a role where there is no previous experience. During the 26 weeks, full training is given as the candidate gains valuable work experience whilst receiving a wage.

Following on, some may be invited to stay in the role or if this is not possible, our Advisers will assist them to source further employment. Either way, our goal is to support Glasgow residents to their desired end result.
