A big welcome to our first work placement colleagues

We’re excited to welcome our very first work placement colleagues, Saeed and Jonny, to Hafod with more joining us soon.

Our work placement programme forms part of our brand new learning and development offer, academi Hafod, available to our colleagues as well as offering workplace opportunities for our local communities.

In February, we held a careers open day in Butetown, Cardiff which attracted over 90 people to find out more about working with us.

Six candidates were successful in applying for a placement in different areas of our organisation including health and safety, housing and community engagement. They will benefit from role-related training, access to our academi, a dedicated mentor who will guide and support them to achieve their placement and personal goals and more.

Nigel Williams, Head of Talent and Leadership at Hafod, said: “Our new work placements programme is a fantastic addition to our growing careers offer at Hafod which forms part of our brand new learning academi launched at the end of 2018.

“Placements are a great opportunity for people to gain practical skills and experience in the workplace.”

As one of the leading providers of housing, support and care in South Wales, we employ over 1,300 colleagues in a wide range of roles. We believe that recruiting dedicated and motivated people is key to delivering excellent services and making lives better for our customers and communities.
