Action Recruitment ‘Move on Up!’ is an employment project for unemployed, black young men. Action West London (formerly Action Acton) has been developing a recruitment agency focussing initially on helping black young men aged 16-24 years find employment.
From there the project has seen success including a recent client, Bilal, who has ascertained an apprenticeship with Brent Council from end April 2016. Below is a quote about Bilal’s experience with Action West London:
“I am currently working for the parking and lighting department at Brent Council starting on 25th April 2016. I do enjoy the job role which I’m currently in as I find the work challenging and also interesting. I appreciate the help and support from Action West London and will continue to use the service as I will be applying for permanent positions later in the year.”
