The partnership between Bags4U/Cash4Clothes and Pathway2Work is now so strong that Bags4U/Cash4Clothes HR Manager Jodie Whitehouse will now recruit on Pathway2Work recommendations without even having to meet the candidates because she has been so impressed with the caliber of candidates to date.

A Pathway2Work Success Story - A Testimonial from an employer for the Work Programme

  1. 1. Success Stories BAGS4U/CASH4CLOTHES
  2. 2. BAGS4U/CASH4CLOTHES In May 2013 Pathway2work received an email from an employer, BAGS4U/ CASH4CLOTHES, who were desperate to recruit Customer Service staff at their new depot in Castle Vale. Their turnaround time was immediate, and if they did not have staff in place, they could have lost their unit. Pathway2Work Birmingham responded quickly and met with their HR Manager, Jodie Whitehouse. Our Employer Engagement Officer, Sushil Toora and Manager, Haroon Baig, met with her assessed her needs, and then with advisors at Birmingham provided clients for interview. On the 29th May, two Work Programme clients started work for the employer. Since, since then a further four clients have been employed by them. The employer then secured a partnership with Tesco in order to commence rolling out Cash4Clothes (Bags4uDirect) units on Tesco sites starting with West Bromwich. In October Pathway2Work Birmingham successfully pre-screened and placed two further clients in employment at the new flagship West Bromwich branch. Jodie Whitehouse attended at Pathway2Work attended in centre prior to the clients starting employment, and expressed her gratitude at the quality of these clients. The relationship has been forged to such an extent that Jodie now will employ based upon Sushil and Haroon’s assessment of candidates, without even having to meet them. A third client will be starting work at the Cash4Clothes West Bromwich branch on 18th November, and Pathway2Work will have exclusivity on ALL further units rolled out at Tesco sites across the region.
