Structec in support of bolton at home working wardrobe scheme

Bolton At Home, a client of Structec’s, has recently established a scheme named Working Wardrobe, which helps interviewees make an effective impression in job interviews through the provision of smart clothing and interview coaching and tips. The scheme was set up in order to open doors to Bolton residents seeking employment who may otherwise have been hindered by their interview presentation.

Structec was very impressed by this idea, so wanted to provide its wholehearted support. The Company put forward a vacancy for a Driving position, and Bolton At Home referred several candidates who were interviewed by John Maddox, Operations Manager and Nathan Lamkin, Project Manager. One of the candidates was successful and has been appointed as an operative within the company, which is a testament to the effectiveness of Working Wardrobe even in its early stages.

Carrie Riley from Bolton At Home provided the following statement: ‘Structec approached Bolton at Home to help recruit a driver/labourer.  We helped advertise the vacancy and held the interviews at our new Town Centre premises “Working Wardrobe”.  Michael has been recruited and is due to start very soon.  We can achieve really good things when we work together, a great example of really good partnership working!’

Further co-operation has been planned between Structec and Working Wardrobe, with John Maddox having become a mentor for the scheme, which involves giving coaching and advice to interviewees. We are pleased at the prospect of contributing to the further success and employability of local working people.
