Only A Pavement Away is the charity for the employment of people facing homelessness, ex-offenders, and veterans, into careers within the hospitality industry.
We connect our network of hospitality employers and charities on our Jobs Board. By registering with Only A Pavement Away, our employers will be able to post vacancies and have access to the library of candidates. The charities will be able to create a Candidate Profile and apply to the vacancies on behalf of the candidates they support. All the candidates registered on our Jobs Board can also have access to a free online training platform.
Once employed, the candidate will become an Only A Pavement Away member, and a 12-month support network will be put in place for them.
At Only a Pavement Away we believe employment brings stability, therefore every successful placement is changing someone’s future.
