GWR_LogoGlasgow Wood Recycling are currently recruiting for their next Making Wood Work programme starting on the 4th August 2015.  It is a BIG lottery funded employability programme aiming to work with those furthest away from the labour market, supporting them to overcome barriers and make progress towards employment.

Making Wood Work is a ten week programme consisting of a wide range of health and safety, wood working, recycling and customer care activities.  The programme is accredited by the National Community Wood Recycling Project and has been designed to help long term unemployed people gain the skills, confidence and experience they need to make progress towards sustainable outcomes in volunteering, training, education and employment.

The training will take place at our workshop at 739 South Street and will take place Tuesday to Friday.  They do not pay training allowance to participants but do pay travel expenses. Lunch and all PPE will be also provided.

Glasgow Wood Recycling is a social enterprise and charity established in 2007 and committed to reducing the amount of wood needlessly going to landfill by finding creative ways to recycle and reuse this valuable natural resource. We make and sell home and garden furniture, all ethically produced and hand crafted in our workshop and through these activities we provide volunteer and training opportunities as a practical way of tackling poverty and social exclusion.
