5 Minutes with Placement Manager, Yael Solomons

20th December 2021

Placements Manager, Yael Solomons, has been with Work Avenue for a tremendous ten years. Here are some reflections from her!

Celebrating 10 years with Work Avenue, you must have seen many changes?
Yes, so many! We have grown so much, both in terms of services we offer and the numbers of clients: about 2000 each year now. We also have taken many steps to improve our practices to ensure the best possible outcomes for all clients.

What is your job about?
Quite simply I place people in jobs. Together with my colleague Melissa, we advertise vacant roles, and then we match our clients to those vacancies. Each year we place about 100 people directly into vacancies from our jobs board. This year, the number is even higher!

What is the best bit about your role?
It is wonderful to see a client start a new job that matches their skills and experience so they can earn their living. I also love liaising with our employers, because by placing someone in work, their business is enhanced too.

How do you see things progressing?
We have seen a massive growth in our jobs board, and I hope this continues so we can continue to place even more people directly into work.
