"Aspire has benefited significantly from a positive and proactive relationship with University College, to help develop our homeless prevention activity in Oxford." – Paul Roberts, COO (Employment & Partnerships) Aspire Oxford
Aspire and Univ
Univ is in continuing dialogue with Aspire to engage their work-ready manpower for paid work experience. The College has numerous requirements for one-off contracts for cleaning, gardening, general refurbishment, cover for maternity and for long term sickness, and Aspire has provided us with services of this nature. In one case this has resulted in Univ retaining the person that Aspire sent to us for permanent employment. Other colleges are engaged in similar interactions, but there is scope for us to build this relationship further to our mutual benefit.
