Calling Thetford businesses – can you support the Young Persons Market Place?

  • Successful launch of Breckland for Jobs in April 2018
  • Elizabeth Truss MP launched the Breckland for Jobs initiative

Following a hugely successful launch of Breckland for Jobs in April, which attracted dozens of employers, who pledged their support for our young people, great strides have been made towards the two year goal of halving youth unemployment in Breckland.

So far only a small portion of that support has been utilised via employers attending group sessions; providing mock interviews; and work experience.  For the next steps DWP want the opportunity to make use of even more of that support by bringing their customers and local employers together, in one place at one time. 

So you are invited to attend Young Persons Market Place which will be held on Friday 12 October 2018 from 9.00am to 1.00pm at Charles Burrell Centre, Staniforth Road, Thetford, IP24 3LH. 

The event is being organised by DWP in collaboration with Norfolk County Council - Education and Training Department and Breckland Council and will attract 16 to 24 year olds.  This would be a perfect opportunity for you to find out more about how Breckland for Jobs works and also to showcase any apprenticeship positions you may have available or indeed any Christmas vacancies.

If you are interested in this event or would like any further information please RSVP to: Nikki David at Nikki.david@dwp.gsi.gov.uk by Friday 21st September.
