Angi Launches Platform and Program to Boost Trades Hiring


Angi, a company that provides maintenance, repair and renovation services for improving and maintaining homes, launched several new initiatives in recognition of May's National Signing Day, which acknowledges and celebrates students who pursue an undergraduate or graduate trade school training program.

Angi Trade Up Scholarship Program

The new Angi Trade Up Scholarship Program will provide scholarships for students in construction-related programs at trade schools nationwide. The scholarship program will award $2,500 scholarships to four students who have been accepted to, or are enrolled in, an undergraduate or graduate construction-related trade program at any trade school, college or university. Scholarship winners will be chosen by Angi’s Pro Council–a council of home service professionals made up of pros in the Angi network who represent businesses with hundreds of collective years of experience servicing homes.

Angi's partnership with BlueRecruit

Angi also announced an expanded partnership with trades jobs platform BlueRecruit, a direct-hire marketplace for skilled trade workers and the companies seeking their talent. BlueRecruit has opened its platform to Angi's network of nearly 200,000 home service pros at no cost to create a first-of-its-kind digital career fair. BlueRecruit’s network of roughly 55,000 job seekers will have the opportunity to connect one on one with Angi's network of pros who are prepared to match and hire during the Angi Trade Up Digital Career Fair.

What the companies say

“Every home in America needs a team of skilled tradespeople to care for it. Unfortunately, there are not enough people entering the trades despite the fact that the careers have extremely high job satisfaction and are well paid. Angi is committed to changing the conversation around careers in the trades,” says Angi co-founder Angie Hicks. “We want to highlight the compelling opportunities in the trades and make sure that students who want to pursue this profession have the support and tools to do so. But we’re excited to take things one step further. Our expanded partnership with the BlueRecruit platform will connect interested  students and job candidates directly with pros to learn more about their career paths as well as specific job opportunities. We’re excited to do our part to  accelerate hiring in these critical industries.”

"As North America's leading skilled trades training and employment placement company, we're honored to work longside incredible organizations like Angi that strive every day to bring awareness to the importance of the skilled trades and the men and women building tomorrow,” says BlueRecruit CEO Rich Camacho. “With our digital career fair on May 7th, we'll be able to help support connections between the incredible new wave of top talent available on BlueRecruit with the nation’s top quality home service companies that use Angi everyday to provide homeowners with exceptional service and craftsmanship."
