We are thrilled to share the news that The Moxie Foundation is officially registered and open for business, and has already awarded the first of its four grants to job seekers.
We know that too often it isn’t a candidate’s skillset, passion or values that get in the way of them securing employment, but their confidence and financial situation.
The Moxie Foundation has been launched to help break down the many barriers to sustainable employment. The aim is simple: every year, we will distribute a series of 16+ grants (four every three months) to those facing financial barriers whilst seeking work in South Wales.
These grants can be used for driving lessons, training, new laptops - whatever is needed to help people viably transition into a career. Unlike other funds available, there are absolutely no restrictions on what we could fund if it is used to secure employment.
We are funding the foundation through 5% of our annual profits, which we hope will empower job seekers from marginalised communities, facing barriers, or at the start of their work journey to secure sustainable and rewarding employment.
