Wandsworth expansion ‘worth’ it

Delivering employment services in Wandsworth has proved to be 'worth' it for local jobseekers.

In early March, Sarina Russo Job Access set up operations in a large open plan office right in the heart of Wandsworth Town Centre, three days a week.

The office provides our customers with access to all facilities needed for jobsearch as well as space to conduct employment training and education sessions.

With an ever increasing caseload, the Wandsworth operation has increased to four days a week and may be expanded to five days a week from mid-April.

Two employment advisors and one trainer manage the entire caseload, offer 1-on-1 support, run training workshops, place customers with community organisations, develop relationships with local organisations to provide volunteer opportunities and find people jobs.

An average of 13 new customers are being referred every week, meaning that more and more customers are getting the opportunity to work with Sarina Russo Job Access and learn new skills with local volunteering organisations.
