Making a difference
“Everyone in this company tries to help me when I’m down; I’ve never really had that before.”
Over the next five years Glasgow Together expects that up to 100 offenders and ex-offenders will work on one of our projects.
Here at Glasgow Together, we are more than just an employer, and we do more than create jobs. Our aim is to see those who have been socially excluded achieve their full potential, and to support them in working towards achieving their career aspirations.
To offer this support in a structured and regular way, Glasgow Together offers not only construction but also "life skill" mentoring as required via our innovative approach on and off site.
We believe that supporting our employees through a mentoring relationship can really make the difference in seeing them make the next step towards achieving their aspirations.
In addition to forging new partnerships we have also concentrated on creating a strong and experienced management team to ensure our goals are met. Below are some of our key team members.
