Summary of project:
Yes (Your Employment Service) was established in 2013 supported by Northwards Housing and Manchester City Council. We provide holistic support to help residents find local jobs. Our vision is to build confidence, drive ambition and inspire people to be the best they can be.
Our mission is to help local unemployed people, particularly long term unemployed people into local jobs. We proactively target businesses to ring-fence some of their vacancies so that local jobs go to local people. Yes provides free wifi and provision of 46 PCs, across our centres, the largest provision of free, unlimited internet access across north Manchester.
Services include: access to online jobs, training and volunteering opportunities and training in search facilities, help with CVs, interview techniques and job applications, setting up email accounts, support to launch a new business or social enterprise, debt, money and budgeting advice, housing advice. Yes staff members and volunteers provide bespoke support, to enable service users to build confidence, seek opportunities and develop their skills.
Services are delivered from our main site in Newton Heath, a deprived area of Manchester, from a hub at The Hive in Blackley and via drop-ins at Cheetham Hill, and Collyhurst.
