Thankyou to Newground Together!

We should like to say a big “Thankyou!” to Chevin Housing, the local housing association which supports Newground Together. With our local councillors, they funded us to provide our Employment Support Project in Darnall.

Their grants enabled Nazia  Fazil, our employment adviser, to support 18 people into employment in various sectors including retail, call centres, care work, cleaning, lunchtime supervision in schools, warehousing and admin.

Alongside this 31 other people have been supported into training and volunteering to improve their skills, including help with careers’ advice, CV writing, job applications, using email to search for work, interview techniques, covering letters, confidence building, IT and retail skills.

She has also provided in-work support once people started their new jobs.  

Once person said, "Nazia, has been very helpful. I have had a great experience and got a better understanding for when I was looking for work. She helped me to do a CV and apply for jobs. Within a few weeks I managed to get a full time position at a call centre as a customer service advisor. Without her help I wouldn’t have a job today.’’

To find out more Tel. 0114 249 0099 Monday - Wednesday and ask for Nazia.
