Gatwick Airport Ltd
Lisa - Recruitment Manager
"Croydon Works is keen to help “harder to reach” job seekers find employment or better job opportunities and has taken on that objective with commitment and enthusiasm, providing those local to Croydon with opportunities to join in. The ‘Employability Fair’ back in the summer was an ideal opportunity for Gatwick Airport to engage with the Croydon job seeking audience about the Airport’s five-year referencing requirements. Croydon Works has been an energetic promoter of Gatwick Airport jobs and encouraging candidates to get their five-year history (education, employment and any unemployment) details together"
Churchhill Contract Services
Judi - Operations Manager
"I found Croydon Works extremely helpful which made the whole process of employing staff really quick and effective.
As a supplier of services on behalf of Croydon Council we have Social Value targets to meet as part of our contract so it is important for us to employ local people to deliver local services. We currently have 86% of our work force both living and working within the Croydon Borough. We are proud of this high percentage and endeavour to retain or even increase it over time.
I contacted Croydon Works to enquire if they had any candidates that would be interested in some permanent cleaning work. I gave the details of the positions, the contractual hours and the hourly rates of pay.
Adnan came back to me very quickly with the names of possible candidates and included their CV’s. He also gave me an overview of the applicants which I found really helpful.
I was then asked who I would like to interview and when would be a convenient time for them to be held.
They subsequently arranged the interviews and I’m very pleased to say we have employed 3 of the 4 candidates! All have been real assets to our team and we are happy to have them on board. I will definitely be contacting Croydon Works again.
A real success story!"
