Jobs For All With CovWise

Unemployed people in Coventry are being handed an unbeatable offer – a guaranteed job.

CovWise, a city-based environmental improvement company, is ready to take on volunteers who turn up to a special open day at Highfield Road later this month.

Anyone over 18, who has been out of work for six months, will be given a year-long job in environmental community improvement work, earning 4 an hour and will be able to start in less than a week.

The Open Day is part of a recruitment campaign launched by CovWise in an attempt to boost numbers on its training schemes.

General manager Donnie Nicolson said:

"We are able, through a change in funding, to pay recruits 4 an hour for a year and they will receive training up to NVQ standard, have guaranteed conditions and free public travel for the first month.

"We have decided to hold the open day to explain directly to those interested just what we have to offer and how they can benefit from joining CovWise. Anyone signing up has employed status and that, coupled with the training we offer, gives them a firm leg-up in the job market.

"We have made sure that people’s paper work can be processed quickly allowing them to be fast-tracked to work. Anyone volunteering on the day will be able to start work the following Monday."

The open day is on Tuesday 13 July in the Highfield Road trophy room and everyone attending will go into a draw to win two seats at a City home game of their choice. Former Sky Blues favourite David Busst will pick out the winner.

CovWise, based on a highly successful model in Glasgow, was established in 1998 and delivers the environment option of New Deal for young people and the STEP programme for the over 25s.

As well as training people and helping them find sustainable full time work, it has also successfully completed several major environment and community improvement projects in the public and private sectors.
