Announcing a new ‘Get into Work’ partner: City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council
MyKindaFuture are delighted to announce our new partnership with City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council, who have joined our ‘Get into Work‘ initiative to actively support the young people disproportionately affected by the pandemic into work and succeed in their future career.
This unique partnership will expand and grow the employment prospects of diverse young people across the Bradford region, enhancing the services currently offered through SkillsHouse – a partnership of organisations led by City of Bradford Council that connect out-of-work residents to jobs and training opportunities. These organisations span education providers, voluntary service providers and employers.
City of Bradford Council are leveraging MyKindaFuture’s mentoring platform, Connectr, to provide their community with access to a wide range of digital mentors from a broad range of organisations and industries who will support individuals on their journey into employment on a referral basis. Connectr will particularly support in providing equal employment opportunity to disadvantaged and underrepresented groups across Bradford.

- SkillsHouse network
- Jobcentre Plus locations including Bradford East, Bradford West, Keighley and Shipley
- Local Authority HR referrals
- Shipley College and Keighley College
- University of Bradford
