Access the 'furlough army' with AAI

Do you have an urgent project for a furloughed professional?

The Coronavirus pandemic is having a devastating impact on many small businesses, social enterprises and charities. This sector of the economy usually employs a huge number of people across Scotland, and supports local and national communities in a variety of ways. 

AAI feels that it is vital to support these small employers to survive through the current lockdown situation, so that they remain in place to provide employment and services in the future.

With a large proportion of UK businesses making use of the Government’s Job Retention Scheme, there are now thousands of motivated professionals at home looking for meaningful projects to volunteer their time and skills for.  AAI is keen to support by connecting the two whilst furlough continues.

If your business has a valuable project that requires urgent support from a furloughed professional, AAI can support the process of attracting the right volunteer for the job.

Through a brief consultation, we can create a brief, inclusive job advert that outlines the opportunity and particulars around furlough volunteering. We would then take over the role promotion, pushing it through various channels including social media (+14k followers) and email blasts (+6000 accounts).

This ‘Furlough Army’ offers a unique opportunity to access a diverse group of professionals for short-term projects. AAI has already assisted COVID-19-specific business projects to attract motivated professionals and was able to advertise and deliver candidates for consideration within a few days.
