Trafford Pledge matches with local businesses with residents, benefitting both the local community and the wider economy.
The Pledge was launched in April 2013 as the Partington Pledge; an initiative to support young people aged 16 to 24 into employment. Due to the success of the project, the borough-wide Trafford Pledge was launched in July 2014 and now supports residents of all ages to find employment.
Businesses can access a network of recruitment support and additional benefits by signing up to the Pledge. By signing the Trafford Pledge, local businesses are committing to offering employment support to local people. This support can include:
- Offering a job
- Recruiting an apprentice
- Offering work experience
- Mentoring a young person
- Practical help, for example with CV writing or preparing for interviews
Greater Manchester partners including the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care partnership, are designing a new early intervention service aimed at small and medium sized businesses. We need employers, particularly small business or start up employers to help us shape the new service.
