The new Light Cinema at the Redrock development in Stockport has benefited from a tailored training programme designed and delivered by Stockport Homes in partnership with Stockport Council. The cinema opened on 23 November.
Stockport Homes have been proud to be involved with the new cinema, and in particular in getting great staff ready for work. Potential employees attended a week-long assessment and learning course to help prepare for interviews, in the newly opened HQ, Cornerstone.
The Light Cinema approached Stockport Homes to assist with recruiting new workers for their Redrock site, and Jamie Pitt, General Manager for the Light Cinema said
The initial stages, course planning and delivery of the pre-employment training was nothing short of fabulous.
Robin Burman, Chair of Stockport Homes’ Board, said
Our employment team have worked closely with Light Cinema to understand what they were looking for in their new employees. By working closely with a local company, we were able to design a tailored programme for their benefit. We also have a great understand of the surrounding area, especially to new companies not familiar with Stockport. We are thrilled that 13 people will be working with the Light Cinema as a result.
It’s been a real pleasure to work with the Stockport Homes team who work incredibly hard and with so much passion to help others into employment. I can’t recommend the process highly enough, which has provided the Light Cinema with an excellent workforce.
