There are many ways corporate involvement can help support our mission – by assisting our Employment Support programme through volunteering or partnership or making a contribution to our fundraising efforts. At The ClementJames Centre we offer a holistic package of support to our clients, tailored to their individual needs. This means that:
- We offer long-term bespoke support
- We support those who are furthest from the job market who may be unable to access other services
- We build meaningful and trusting relationships with clients, making our programmes more impactful
There are a range of ways you can get involved in a partnership with ClementJames. Our packages are personalised and can be tailored to suit your organisation’s capacity, whether you’re a small business operating in the local area or a large corporation working internationally.
Develop training or employment opportunities for clients on our employment programme. Clients are matched to this opportunity based on skill sets and experience.
- Our experienced team prepares prospective clients with practical and soft skills and continues to support clients in the initial stages of their new employment contract
- Gain skilled new employees to your workforce and have a long-term impact on a client’s life
Interview Skills Day
Your team of 10 – 15 volunteers spends a day working with our clients helping to boost confidence and develop strategies to help them succeed in that all-important job interview.
- Volunteers develop leadership, communication, and coaching skills
- Briefing and activities on the day are facilitated by our staff who remain as a point of contact for volunteers
In the past, we’ve run events with:
- Wyelands Bank
- Smart Works
- Johnson & Johnson
- Javelin Group
The event was really well organised and run on the day … people were impressed with how seamless it felt moving between the group and individual sessions … all volunteers found the experience very rewarding despite quite a few feeling nervous in advance of the day.”Volunteer from Wyelands Bank
Volunteers work on-to-one with a client to achieve their goal over a period of up to six one-hour sessions. Training is provided by ClementJames staff in advance of the first session.
- Volunteers gain mentoring and volunteer experience whilst developing coaching and people-focused skills
- Volunteers are matched with clients according to skill set and experience
