Unit 13 Job Shop in an ethical employment agency based in the heart of the community at Hanson Lane. It was set up to link job seekers with employers in the most efficient way possible. We wanted to make sure that neither the job seeker nor the job provider wasted time or money so we invented the ethical recruitment agency.

We vet and support job seekers so only the best candidates are presented to employers and we don’t charge the company or the job seekers for our services.

It is better our clients speak for us rather than we speak for ourselves. This is what one of the members of the Manufacturing Alliance in Calderdale published about us in their recent newsletter:

"One of our members in Calderdale is struggling to recruit a textile operative with some experience. (Yes, despite all the unemployment in Yorkshire and with all the closure of textile companies, the operatives seem to have vanished). We advised him to contact the Halifax Opportunity Trust, whom another of our members has found very useful for recruiting"

This is what one of our job seekers said about us:

"I was made redundant by an Engineering company where I had been since I left school 10 years ago. I had never had to face this before and didn’t know how to do forms and interviews. Unit 13 helped me with all that and then put me forward for a job and I started the next day. I live in North Halifax and had never been to Hanson Lane before. The help I got and the way I was treated was just great and I will always be grateful." - Alan from Boothtown
