BasWorx Reaches Key Milestone!

BasWorx reaches key milestone!

  • News

Two years on from the start of our 10 year Integrated Asset Management contract with Basildon Council and the launch of our first social enterprise BasWorx, the partnership recently celebrated a new chapter in the BasWorx journey.

On 21st September, we launched our brand new BasWorx website – https://basworx.org.uk/

Amy Ross, CSR director said, “The website will be fundamental in helping to recruit new trainees and promote the fantastic training opportunities available to residents of all ages and backgrounds.”

The website details case studies of trainees who have completed the programme and their journeys on to future employment. It also enables easier access to more information about the programme and explains how residents of the borough can apply.

To officially mark the launch of the website, we hosted a celebration day at the Barleylands office. Amy Ross talked through the BasWorx journey so far, including the four industry awards BasWorx had achieved and showcasing the four cohorts who have been through the programme and their individual stories. Several awards were also presented to staff who have made a significant contribution to the programme over the two years.

Councillor Don Morris, Chairman of the Housing Committee at Basildon Council, said: “Increasing employment and skills opportunities for borough residents through a social value element was a key factor in the procurement process when Morgan Sindall were awarded the repairs and maintenance contract.

“Basworx has gone from strength to strength and become the jewel in the crown of our relationship with Morgan Sindall. I am delighted to see how much of an impact it is having in the borough.”

The BasWorx programme was set up to create work experience, apprenticeships, and employment opportunities for Basildon residents through a structured work based training and up skilling. It bridges the gap between young people leaving school and accessing apprenticeships, and provides the support required to help unemployed residents back into work.

To date 29 residents have been trained through the BasWorx programme with eight going on to full-time employment as part of the BasWorx team.
