ISS and ELBA find jobs for Newham unemployed

20 April 2011

In the first three months of 2011, the ISS: A passport to work employment programme, run by ISS Facility Services, East London Business Alliance (ELBA) and Newham Council, has found 40 jobs at ISS for Newham residents.

The full time and permanent positions are in a variety of roles, supervisory and operative, at some of the blue chip companies ISS supports in London, including PwC, Reebok and Nomura.
Darren Hawkins, Divisional Director, ISS Facility Services London, explained, “As one of the largest facility services companies in the UK, we are very serious about our people. Our success is founded on hiring good people and then giving them the support, development and opportunity to enjoy a great career. ISS; A passport to work shows that good business is also successful business.”
The programme is a partnership between ISS, ELBA and Newham Council to find career opportunities for Newham residents. It aims to find, prepare and support people who have been workless for considerable periods of time. With the long track record of ISS specifically in Newham and London more generally, ISS: A passport to work is off to a strong start.
Liam Kane, Chief Executive, ELBA, said, “The results that the ISS – A passport to work programme has achieved over such a short period of time are fantastic and a testament to the success of ELBA’s embedded account manager model. ELBA is excited about working with ISS going forward to help even more people from Newham into employment.”
Mayor of Newham, Sir Robin Wales said: “Getting more of our residents into employment is a key priority. Our partnership with ELBA grows from strength-to strength and it is rewarding to hear it has made a successful start.”
Jim Hayes, Director, ISS Facility Services, summarised, “Working with ELBA and Newham has exceeded our expectations. Acting together, we have already created real jobs for Newham residents and it is fantastic to watch these new recruits thrive when given real opportunities. The fact that some are already in supervisory roles is testament to the quality of the process and the people involved. We are really looking forward to the rest of the year.”
