Providing pathways to employment
As a social landlord, Genesis Housing Association is committed to supporting the long-term future of its residents. One way that Genesis does this is by helping residents and their families find employment.
For the last 4 years, Genesis has delivered its successful ‘Volunteer into Employment Programme’ for residents, and has so far helped 157 people into employment. Now, Retinue Solutions is working in partnership with Genesis to deliver a mentoring programme that offers specialist employment support to a small group of residents, and assists them with their professional and personal development.
With the help of the mentoring programme, mentees are actively involved in a wide range of volunteering activities and have opportunities to develop skills that can help them find work.
Alongside Genesis, we aim to provide mentees with a stepping stone to employment, a journey that will help them regain confidence and develop the necessary skills to pursue relevant employment opportunities. To gain the most benefit out of our time together, regular 1-2-1 sessions are facilitated by our mentors, encompassing:
- CV and career advice
- Interview training
- Job search assistance and recommendations
- On-going feedback
Although the programme is still in its early stages, initial feedback is positive and over the coming months, we will be keeping you up to date with the programme, and highlighting mentees’ success as they work towards their end goals.
