Scarborough Jobmatch celebrates a milestone
Scarborough Jobmatch are celebrating this week after reaching another fantastic milestone; successfully helping their 500th person back into employment just 20 months after the start of the project.
As the recruitment partner of choice for the Middle Deepdale Development project in Eastfield, both Kebbell Homes and Keepmoat homes were fast to appoint new temporary staff for their developments.
The 500th placement was for a labourer for Kebbell Homes, Oliver Rank, who upon returning from working offshore was keen to get involved with the Eastfield development. The regeneration project will see 44 acres of land transformed into 1,350 new homes, an extra care complex, a primary school, community hall, small scale retail provision and public open spaces, creating a new community near Scarborough.
Oliver said “After seeing a post on the Scarborough Jobmatch Facebook page, I called to ask for some more information about the Labourer position with Kebbell Homes. Within twenty-four hours, I had an interview arranged and had been offered the role, starting two days later.”
Mike Mulligan, Northern Development Director, said “We are delighted to have Oliver as part of our northern team, as he has made an impressive contribution and is already working very hard in his new role.
“Oliver was selected from three possible candidates, not only because of his qualifications and experience, but because of his ‘can do’ attitude and optimistic personality, which made him an ideal colleague to fit into the Kebbell Homes team at Middle Deepdale.
“While this project is still very much in its infancy, we are pleased to already be making a difference to the local community and local people like Oliver.”
Scarborough Jobmatch offer support to overcome barriers to employment or to those simply looking for a change in career. Jobmatch are also fast becoming the recruitment partner of choice for permanent and temporary placements with a wide range of businesses across Scarborough and surrounding areas.
