Team Bolton Work Academy offers job opportunities to local unemployed

News And Events||27/01/2017

Local law firm, Keoghs, has hailed an overwhelming response to its new Sector Based Work Academy initiative over the last six months.

Keoghs worked in partnership with Job Centre Plus, Bolton College and Bolton Council to secure roles for eight successful recruits from the local community, all of whom had been looking for work long term.

The sector based government scheme was launched last summer by the leading Bolton employer with the aim of placing local unemployed people into secure full time employment within the firm.

The initiative has proved so successful that Keoghs will be holding an open day on Tuesday 31st January 2017 which they are hopeful will be as successful as the first.

Keoghs CSR Manager, Rachel Mitchell-Denson, was delighted with the response from the local community, saying;

“Sometimes there can be a misconception that you need to be a solicitor or have a degree to work for a firm such as Keoghs when, in actual fact, this couldn’t be further from the truth. We are absolutely committed to employing and training applicants from the Bolton area, especially those who have the desire and passion to work but just need someone to open a door for them. Working in partnership with Team Bolton has been hugely rewarding but more than anything we have found some amazing new people who would never even have considered us an employer.”

Bolton Council’s Executive Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Cllr Ebrahim Adia, said;

“We’re really pleased that Keoghs are working with the Team Bolton partnership again to recruit more local people into jobs. Team Bolton is a fantastic example of how partnership working across different organisations can help improve the skills and employment opportunities of our residents.”

One of those now employed under the scheme is Daniel Gradwell, who undertook the role of Business Support Assistant in the post room last July.

“I had faced 9 months of unemployment before attending the open day and I had lost all motivation in finding a job and in myself”, he said.

“I felt drained looking for work and it seemed like a never ending road of disappointment. I would not have approached Keoghs as an employee, as ‘solicitors’ was a big scary word for someone with no skills in that area and I never thought about the other positions that could be available in various areas. I have ended up meeting and working with amazing people and this is the best job I have had. Looking back, I can’t believe I was scared to take that first step.”

For more information on Keoghs’ open day and how to attend, contact your local Job Centre Plus.

The Team Bolton partnership, established in 2013, works with more than 400 local employers to help to improve local people’s skills and secure a job for them. Other partners include Bolton at Home, the University of Bolton, the Work-Based Learning Provider Network and Welfare to Work Providers.
