Windmill Park job fair attended by 105 residents

Senait - Heathrow Qtr 3105 residents of the Windmill Park estate in Southall have participated in a jobs fair where they received advice about training and employment opportunities in West London.

Organised by housing provider Catalyst, the event was held at the Windmill Park Community Centre on Thursday 10 March 2016.

A variety of training and employment options were available from the nine organisations present. The companies were: Learndirect; Admiral recruitment, Higgins, Care mark, Redwood Skills; Heathrow Academy, Hammersmith and West London college, Jobcentre plus, and Bouygues.

Hopefully the event will prove as successful in getting people jobs as have previous jobs fairs organised by Catalyst in the Southall area. Following a similar recruitment event held during November 2015, three Catalyst and three Havelock residents completed training at Heathrow Academy before getting jobs at the airport.

One of those successful residents is Senait, who had struggled to find consistent work. But she now says: “I’m really enjoying my  role as a Customer Services Assistant and I’m looking forward to progressing my career.”
