Norwich For Jobs will be celebrating our 6 Year Anniversary with a unique Reverse Jobs Fair

Norwich For Jobs will, on Friday 25th January 2019, be celebrating 6 years of successfully helping young people into work by hosting a ‘Reverse Jobs Fair’.

The event, which is taking place at The Great Hospital, will see around 50 local employers come together to receive an update on our work since the start of the project. Many employers attending are Norwich For Jobs certificate holders, and will be joining us for a special photo opportunity with their certificates, as well as employers who will be presented with their certificates at the event.

Rhys' Story

Rhys suffers from Dyslexia, he looks after the welfare of his younger brother and lives with his Stepfather.  Lacking in confidence and direction, Rhys, after discussion with his Work Coach, decided to start on the Monday Support Club.  He received much one to one support from, and joined in various activities on the Support Club.  This developed his social interaction and communication with others.  Through various support offered via NFJ, Rhys made progress, by attending external visits to employers and participating in activities to develop his self esteem.  Every Monday was different.
