Routes to Work and North Lanarkshire Working were delighted to initiate the first 50+, wellbeing, employability and community support event in the Sir Matt Busby Sports Complex in Bellshill last week.
It was a great opportunity for residents of North Lanarkshire to network, learn about support services in their local area and search for vacancies.
Around 150 people attended and the feedback was extremely positive from clients, partners and employers alike.
Many attendees were delighted to hear about all of the services on offer and will take advantage of these services to gain support and assistance in moving towards employment.
Employment Opportunities for Refugees
This upcoming Job Fair focuses on employment opportunities for refugees. The event will be held in Glasgow on Wednesday 11 September, hosted by the Scottish Refugee Council and The Bridges Programmes..
Why should you attend?
Equality and fairness should be at the heart of a modern Scotland. In an increasingly complex business environment, diversity helps us adapt and survive in different circumstances and changing environments. In a small country like Scotland, it also means we’re making the best use of the talents and experience of all our people. And that’s good for business.

We have been working with TRJ Contracts for several years and they have committed to supporting our vision and values.
Our clients are at the heart of everything that we do and TRJ support clients in the local communities with a variety of barriers ranging from health conditions to family issues to access, sustain and progress within employment.
TRJ recognised the positives and potential in these individuals and work tirelessly with Routes to Work and North Lanarkshire Council to ensure that they offer the best support and direction to develop our vulnerable clients who otherwise may not have been given the opportunity.
TRJ Contracts has recruited several of our younger clients, placed them into apprenticeships and helped them through their journey on the way to becoming fully qualified.
The clients have been provided with support through college, with some achieving some of the highest percentages in class and all clients have sustained in work in excess of 6 months.
Not only that but TRJ have given us their time to come along to events to promote our partnership and encourage other organisations to work with us in line with their community benefit clause with no personal or business gain.
TRJ Contracts believe in working with people in their communities and should be proud of their achievements as we are proud to work alongside them.
