My name is Andreea and I am an Operations Manager at Business in the Community. BITC has recently launched an ambitious new project aimed at supporting jobseekers into employment through coaching.
I am getting in touch as we are looking to partner with organisations like your who support people into employment and would like t join our mission.
The initiative started in May this year in 4 regions and we are now expanding into the South West, North West and Scotland.
Stats to date:
Based on our community network and long standing partners, your organisation has been recommended for the area and we would like to have a chat about how we can work together so we can help as many jobseekers as possible.
It would be great if we can arrange a call or if you could forward this email to the relevant person in your employment and skills team. Below and attached is a bit more info on what our initiative is, how it works and how it will benefit your service users.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
In the light of escalating levels of unemployment as a result of Covid-19, and the disproportionate impact this will have on groups already disadvantaged in the labour market we want to support jobseekers with a programme that equips them with the following:
- Essential and digital skills
- Improved chances of a successful job outcome – by increasing knowledge of the job market and building core employability skills
- Enhanced wellbeing and resilience – helping them to stay positive and connected to the world of work
Through BITC’s business connections network, business volunteers will be trained to support beneficiaries through 6 coaching sessions which will achieve the above.
OUR AMBITION: TO DEVELOP A SKILLED AND INCLUSIVE WORKFORCE
- GET PEOPLE BACK INTO WORK
- 10,000 people ready for new jobs over the next 30 months.
- PILOT: Match 200 clients with a BITC-trained job-coach.
- BREAK DOWN BARRIERS TO RECRUITMENT
o A network of UK employers breaking down recruitment barriers and creating more accessible pathways
o Increased jobseekers’ understanding of the jobs and industries open to them.
o PILOT: Establish & test referral process in 4 regions/nations across the UK.
· MOBILISE THE UK WORKFORCE
o Harness the desire of employees to be part of the UK’s recovery from the pandemic.
o PILOT: Recruit at least five national employers to test the coaching model.
