A pop-up career and employment shop will be set up in Basildon Town Centre as part of a series of activities designed to support skills training.
Basildon Council’s Economic Growth and Development Committee last night (Thursday 5 July) agreed to implement the recommendations proposed by the Pathways to Success panel. The panel was established to investigate how schools, businesses and education providers work together to provide routes to employment.
The pop-up shop will be open to all residents, but is aimed in particular at young people aged 16 to 26, people in low paid work and those who are unemployed.
It will offer the following services:
• One-on-one career advice
• School and employer liaison
• Adverts for current vacancies and apprenticeship/traineeship opportunities
• Job search support including CV writing
• Benefit advice for in-work benefits and childcare support
• Employer events
