SUMMER JOBS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER"

STENA PROPERTY OFFERS 350 JOBS TO YOUNG

Stena Property is offering summer jobs this year to more young people than ever before. At the same time, young summer workers' duties will be partly modified. This is due to the ongoing pandemic Covid-19.

“At times like this, we see it as especially important to invest in summer jobs to help strengthen hope and belief in the future for young people in our neighborhoods,” says sustainability manager Cecilia Fredholm Vaarning. “That’s why we’re stretching our organisation to the limits so that we can enable more young people to get summer jobs. We’re offering 350 summer jobs this year.”

 

COVID-19 INITIATIVE — EVEN MORE SUMMER JOBS WITH PARTNERS

Stena Property has employed 300 summer workers each year since 2014, which is equal to the company’s number of regular employees. This year, the company is adding an additional 50 summer jobs. This is to give more young people the opportunity for a first job, to give them contacts for the future and to create a sense of security and pride in the neighborhoods where they live. Due to the pandemic, many summer jobs have disappeared, contributing to Stena Properties decision to further raise its ambitions. 

“We’re offering 350 summer jobs ourselves. At the same time we’re holding discussions with clubs and municipalities to employ even more young people in cooperation with them,” says Cecilia Fredholm Vaarning. “Because some municipalities have announced that they no longer have work for young people this summer, we’d like to go in where we can and ensure that as many young people as possible who live in our apartments have summer jobs. For example, in Skärholmen in Stockholm, we will be employing eight extra summer workers through collaboration with the organisation Ung Arena and the City of Stockholm.”

In Gothenburg, the company already enjoys a partnership with the Förebildarna organisation, where ten young people will work as so-called change agents.

 

NEW DUTIES – FOR INCREASED SOLIDARITY AND ACTIVITIES

In and around Stena Properties housing areas, events have been cancelled. And to meet the new reality, some job duties will be changed.

“With the current situation, we’re gearing up and making changes,” says Cecilia Fredholm Vaarning. “This means the summer workers can have new duties. As an example, they might be leading various forms of outdoor activities for children and the elderly in the neighborhood. In this way, summer workers can help children who are home for summer vacation have something to do when so much else is closed.”

Stena Property is following the recommendations of the Public Health Agency of Sweden and adapting operations thereafter.
