Supporting the local community by setting up a ‘Job Club’

Supporting the local community helps to leave a positive impression of the construction industry.

Opportunities should be created for local residents, showing a positive commitment to the community, whilst also promoting the benefits of working in the construction industry.

Below is an example of how a site introduced a ‘Job Club’ to create opportunities for local residents:

  • Together with the local church the company set up a ‘Job Club’, not just targeting construction workers but anyone seeking help to get work;
  • The site provided the contact details of each subcontractor, for anyone who sought employment for a specific trade;
  • Job club posters were displayed and business cards were given out on site, for any operatives who may have friends or relatives looking for work;
  • They also offered help in writing applications, provided discussions on the best route into the industry and offered ‘taster days’;
  • On completion a certificate was given and a contact name from the site team to verify successful attendance.
