GUNWHARF QUAYS SUPPORTING OTHERS' SUCCESS
Gunwharf Quays Supporting Others’ Success is a fund that has been designed to assist people in our community in the Portsmouth area with the aim of creating jobs and opportunities.
There are people who could do great work given the chance, not least the homeless, disabled and ex-offenders. Others, particularly young people, have a huge amount to offer – but don’t think a career in property is an option.
We’re connecting these dots: bringing more people into our industry and building a strong workforce for the future. Alongside partners from our communities and our supply chain, we give disadvantaged groups the training they need to get back into work. We work with schools to encourage students into construction and customer service roles. And we attract talented people to Gunwharf Quays by being a great place to work.
Gunwharf Quays are committed to working with community partners to support our overall commitment to create jobs and opportunities. We work with our service partners and brand partners to open-up these opportunities, often within customer service roles.
Through our education activity we engage with schools, colleges and universities to provide opportunities for young people to increase their skills and become aware of careers in our industry.
Applications of up to £4,000 can be made once a year and will be reviewed by a Committee to allocate the fund as effectively as possible. In return, successful applicants will be required to share data with Gunwharf Quays in relation to the number of work placements and job outcomes the funding has achieved and other related information.
To apply for funding, please complete the attached form and return to firstname.lastname@example.org by the closing date of 4th October 2018 for consideration by the Selection Committee.
