We are a horticultural based Social Enterprise committed to providing high quality employment for young people who find themselves excluded from the job market because of confidence, basic skills and/or educational qualifications.
Unemployment is a primary cause of homelessness, crime, drug and alcohol addiction and can lead to mental health issues. We believe that by offering young people in Coventry the opportunity of a useful, enjoyable and fulfilling job then they will grow in self confidence and raise their aspirations. We will be there to support them every step of the way and to help them, when the time is right, to springboard into full time employment, an Apprenticeship or back into education. They may even have a business ideas that we can help them to get off the ground!
Our core service is a professional gardening service delivering garden and grounds maintenance to domestic and commercial customers. In addition we offer a “small jobs” service that will benefit everyone but specifically to assist elderly members of the community and those with less mobility to complete basic jobs around their homes and garden for example shed and garden clearance, de-cluttering, basic gardening, simple decorating and home DIY which will make lives easier.
It is important to us that everyone gets involved in the running of Team Springboard – designing and delivering marketing material and social media campaigns, meeting customers, costing the job and providing quotes, completing risk assessments, executing the job to an excellent standard and checking customer satisfaction levels during and after the job is finished. The team will have the opportunity to understand all aspects of the business from start to finish - success will be a joint effort!
All Team Leaders have Enhanced DBS checks, we are fully insured and there is always a supervisor at each job.
Our vision is that Team Springboard will be the go-to place for companies in the West Midlands who are looking for employees who are confident, capable and reliable. We will also be the go-to place for anyone who needs a basic job completing around their house or garden because we will deliver excellent value for money and excellent, cheerful customer service.
