A job fair will be organized to mark the opening of a new recruitment service for the unemployed in Grantham and Stamford.
Jobs 22 will open in units 21-22 at the George Center, Grantham, as part of the government’s Restart program, aimed at helping long-term unemployed people find jobs in their area.
Anyone unemployed and claiming universal credit is invited to meet potential employers at the show and chat with the Jobs 22 team.
The restart program is part of the government’s âJobs Planâ to help people find jobs in their area. It aims to help more than a million people find jobs.
It offers 12 months of personalized and community support to long-term unemployed people.
Participants will receive support to learn new skills, overcome barriers at work and access job vacancies to help them find a job.
They will also have the opportunity to retrain to find work in growing industries, obtain professional accreditations and improve their digital skills.
The program will complement the vital work of Jobcentre Plus in Grantham and Stamford, with additional expertise, investment, innovation and additional capacity for tailor-made support.
It will also offer up to one year of tailor-made support to each participant, who will each have access to a Jobs 22 job coach.
Jobs 22 Grantham and Stamford Commercial Director Melanie Mason said: âWe look forward to welcoming local employers, council representatives and local service providers to open our new home in the George Center.
âIf you are an employer looking to hire new people or looking for a job, come visit us and we can help you with the skills and support you need. There is a lot of untapped talent in our regions and we are here to help build the confidence and skills of those affected by the pandemic. “
The career fair takes place Wednesday, October 27, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the George Center, Grantham.
