Part of our culture at Wote Street is about giving back. Our core values are: we listen, we consult, we care and that fits perfectly with all of the charities and community groups we support locally.
This blog focuses on our work with the M3 Job Club.
As a recruitment consultancy looking to support the local community in Basingstoke, working with a local job club was a no brainer – the same goes for the charity.
Our support is a win-win situation for M3 Job Club, its members and Wote Street People.
Yes. It’s an environment for opportunity for our recruitment agency, but our main purpose is to help businesspeople make better choices about their career. It’s certainly not all about the fee.
Maxine Hart, Operations Director at Wote Street People and Trustee of M3 Job Club says “Some people we have met at M3 Job Club have specialist skills and seek roles that don’t often come onto our books – we can’t place everyone.
“So, when we can’t successfully match people we offer practical advice to help these job seekers find job opportunities themselves, coaching them on how to build up a network of people who can help them in their pursuit of happiness of finding the right position.”
Being made redundant or finding yourself without a job knocks confidence; that’s the same for everyone whether you were a CEO or an junior assistant. It’s even harder when you’ve done the same type of role and/or worked at the same company for a long time and you’ll need to step outside your comfort zone. You may have no understanding of how the job market works and how to look for jobs – it’s overwhelming and the comfort of your comfy chair at home can seem more appealing. But that doesn’t give you back a purpose or pay the bills!
That’s where the Wote Street People team can really help. We work with M3 Job Club members to build their confidence back up again. Get them ready to look for jobs, ensure they’re interview-ready. Keep them motivated to ensure the maintain momentum. The more members put into their job-seeking experience the more they will get out.
