Consultant at Pertemps London City, Adam Gill, has been leading employability workshops for the homeless, offering help and job advice.
Adam works with charity, Crisis, who are dedicated to ending homelessness by delivering life-changing services. They want to change the way society thinks and acts towards homeless people, and help them to break the cycle of homelessness.
Adam has been working with the charity for six months, representing Pertemps and running various team building exercises to build up peoples’ confidence skills in preparation for a jobs fair.
He said, “The best thing about the workshops is seeing people come out of their shells and start communicating at higher level and everyone smiling and socialising during their group exercises. Also, it’s great to get positive feedback from those who take part.”
Adam was personally thanked for his support by the CEO of Crisis, Jon Sparkes, who said, “Thank you to Adam for supporting our Employment Platform event. As a result, we were able to support over 50 of our members to develop their interview skills and techniques to use at our recruitment fair, and importantly gain the confidence to use these skills with a prospective organisation.
“These events are made possible by the incredible support of the volunteers that help us to deliver the preparation day. Our members very much appreciated the opportunity to work with Adam, and their feedback was extremely positive.”
From everyone at Pertemps, a huge well done to Adam and all his hard work volunteering with Crisis. He will continue to work with them in the future and help more homeless people to gain the confidence to get into the world of work.
