A new partnership between Divvy, the city’s bike-share program, and clothing retailer The Gap will aim to provide year-round employment for those unemployed by coordinating seasonal jobs. The initiative is coordinated by Skills for Chicagoland’s Future, a public-private partnership that began under World Business Chicago, and will launch a pilot program beginning in April.
Employees would work for eight months — from March through October — as Divvy “rebalancers,” distributing bikes throughout the city. From October through February, employees would work in a variety of roles for The Gap during the holiday season. Anyone interested in the program can apply here. Jobs would begin in late-April. To qualify, applicants must be currently unemployed and live in Cook County. LINK
