River Clyde Homes hosts successful jobs fair in Inverclyde
The event was attended by a number of local employers as well as those providing training, apprenticeships and work experience, with around 70 people registering with contractor Cruden for opportunities relating to River Clyde Homes’ regeneration of Slaemuir.
“Events like these are crucial in achieving our vision of ‘Improving Lives and Places’,” explained Jonathan Grant, head of customer services (east) at River Clyde Homes. “Providing good quality, affordable housing is only one aspect of this, and we are keen to continue to partner with other local employers to promote employment and training opportunities in Inverclyde.”
River Clyde Homes is involved in a number of initiatives to boost jobs and employability in the Inverclyde area. The Positive Goals partnership with Greenock Morton provides support for River Clyde Homes customers seeking to return to work, and the housing association continues to work with Cruden to provide further opportunities at its new developments in the Mallard and James Watt Dock areas of Greenock.
In addition River Clyde Property Management, a subsidiary of the housing association, will once again be hiring seasonal grounds maintenance staff this year.
