Before I went to Norwich4jobs Monday Support Club, I was struggling to find a job and my confidence was much lower than it is now. At the time I joined Norwich4jobs I had just finished my MA degree in Creative Writing and was volunteering for Hellesdon Library where I had been volunteering for since the year I started sixth form. I also volunteered for the Conservation Volunteers from 2014 to 2015 and Oxfam St Giles from 2016 to 2019.

We met Joe in May and he advised that he was starting University in September studying law but that he could do with obtaining some relevant work experience. I contacted Howes Percival LLP who were happy to provide this for Joe. Joe enjoyed his time there and is now ready to start his Law degree with added confidence
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals Foundation Trust has been recognised for its efforts in establishing career paths and opportunities for young people, and has been awarded a Norwich for Jobs Gold Award.
Norwich for Jobs is a network of local employers, charities and organisations volunteering with the aim of getting young people the skills and experience they need to find work. Employers working with Norwich for Jobs can earn bronze, silver, gold or platinum awards for participation, and NNUH has achieved the necessary requirements for a prestigious gold award.
Norwich For Jobs enjoyed our recent visit to The Feed on the Prince of Wales Road.
We visited The Feed with a number of our Monday Support Club Members, who learned about the social enterprise, which offers catering and employability courses.
The visit allowed our Monday Club members an opportunity to see first-hand what services The Feed offers, and to look at the opportunities they offer as a route into a career in catering.
More information about The Feed can be found on their website: https://thefeed.org.uk/
New U Shop, Castle Mall and 'Norwich for Jobs' working in partnership to support our young people.
The New-U shop is unique in that it operates on the basis of donate, swap or loan and no cash transactions will be made but will operate using a voucher system. The other purpose of this shop is to give young people the skills and confidence to progress into employment by offering retail work experience placements in a supportive environment. It is a unique relaxed atmosphere, ideal for our vulnerable N4J customers.
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.
