We opened our Doncaster hub office in May 2012 – a partnership development with St Leger Homes of Doncaster.
The Doncaster office has a particular focus on creating new job opportunities in Doncaster for the long term unemployed. It was officially opened in June 2012 by MPs Rosie Winterton and Caroline Flint.
Doncaster Central MP Rosie Winterton said: “It’s important to empower organisations like Viewpoint because they help equip people with the skills and confidence they need to break out of long-term unemployment.”
Don Valley MP Caroline Flint said: “It is vital that employers play their part in giving people second chances to retrain, gaining experience or confidence in work. St Leger Homes’ work with Viewpoint is an example to other employers about what can be achieved.”
Susan Jordan, chief executive of St Leger Homes, said: “We are working with Viewpoint to help create job opportunities in the town for local tenants and residents, helping those who have been out of work for a long time to get back into the world of work. They are doing an excellent job carrying out independent tenant surveys for us.”
