RBH’s Workwear Workshop Scheme offers Rochdale residents with a confirmed job interview a helping hand to make a positive first impression with employers by supplying a great range of new and high-quality second-hand men and women’s clothing free of charge. The project, which is based at the Strand Community Hub in Kirholt, recently helped local Rochdale resident Jay Jay Tomoye to take the next step on his employment journey.
Jay Jay, who is an RBH tenant, came along to the weekly Job Club run by RBH in partnership with Rochdale Council’s Work and Skills team every Thursday at the Strand Community Hub to access help looking for work. Jay Jay had undertaken a range of jobs in the past and was keen to secure paid work as Christmas approached.
As well as getting immediate support to apply for an upcoming warehousing vacancy, Jay Jay received encouragement and guidance to explore his self-employment options for the future. And with an induction with a new employer set up for the next day, we were also able to offer a helping hand by supplying a pair of steel capped work boots from the Workwear Workshop Scheme.
RBH’s Workwear Workshop scheme and the Work and Skills Job Club sessions re free and open to all Rochdale residents aged 18+. For more information about either of these schemes click here.
