Peterborough MP Stewart Jackson visited a unique employment service run by charity Papworth Trust on Friday November 30.
The Papworth Trust Employment office in Peterborough supports long-term unemployed adults in getting back into sustainable work.
During his visit, Mr Jackson met with staff and took part in a food hygiene training session with a group of job hunters from the local area.
Stewart Jackson MP said
“I enjoyed visiting Papworth Trust today and am delighted at their success supporting Peterborough people to find jobs,”
“I’ve learnt a lot about the Work Programme and the challenges involved. I am sure Papworth Trust will go from strength to strength.”
Carolyn Richards, Business Manager at Papworth Trust said,
“We help people from all walks of life, from those who have possibly never worked to people who have had long-term jobs in the past. We offer practical help with job searching, interview techniques and basic skills such as numeracy and literacy, as well as support with motivation and confidence. Every person we help should be able to find and keep a job that is right for them.”
Papworth Trust also offers local employers a free recruitment service, including job matching. To find out more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org phone 01480 357 200 or go to www.papworth.org.uk/mywork
