Unemployed people are now Stax better off

Unemployed people in Glasgow are being helped back into work thanks to our partnership with a local wholesale and trade supplier.

The Stax Trade Centres warehouse branch on the Queenslie Industrial Estate now employs four full time workers who have all been able to find their way back into employment, thanks to the joint efforts of Stax Trade Centres and Working Links. 

“We have been involved with Working Links for over two years now and the partnership has brought benefits for everyone involved,” explains Gary Anderson of Stax Trade Centres. “We have been able to provide work experience for a number of people via Working Links, and four of them have gone on to gain permanent roles working in our packing and administration departments.”

“Working Links does a great job in helping unemployed local people find their way back to the world of work, and we’re delighted to play our part in that process. The vast majority of our 89 employees live within three miles of the store, so we feel it’s especially important that we do our bit to help the local community. Through Working Links we’ve really benefitted by finding local people who are ready to work and keen to take the opportunities we can offer them.” 

Working Links’ Bob Taylor said: “We really value the opportunities which a company like Stax Trade Centres can offer to our customers. By working together in this way, we can make a real contribution and help create positive outcomes for people in the Glasgow area.”
