Osborne supports employability workshops at the South Hill Centre

Osborne recently supported the South Hill Centre, a charity established almost 20 years ago, who have been offering a broad range of support services and facilities for the benefit of the community in Hemel Hempstead.

In partnership with the Healthy Hub Dacorum, the centre runs a well-attended Employability & Wellness Hub which offers a free drop-in support group, for anyone living within Dacorum who are unemployed, under-employed, or threatened with redundancy. The centre also engages with Refugees and Asylum Seekers.

Osborne Social Value Manager, Nadia, joined the Hub to run an employability session. With doors opening at 10 a.m, Nadia assisted many visitors with their concerns, supporting in various issues to include job searches within the borough and employability advice. A diverse range of people from the homeless through to senior executives were supported, with the centre seeing 105 people visit on the day.

Jeremy Keeley, Operations & Development Manager, South Hill Centre:

“Thanks for your help and support at our employability and wellbeing hub. It was great to have you with us. Having business people around to assist in giving practical support and advice around employment, adds value to the multitude of people coming through our doors. Osborne specific support, offering some ‘high level’ careers guidance and CV support, was particularly helpful.”

Jo Fletcher, Head of Engagement, Osborne Property Services:

“Sharing good employability skills helps to increase the chances of job placement and development. We are very pleased to continue to support the South Hill Centre and local customers through offering ongoing careers advice with the aim of securing an interview and a job.”
