Norwich For Jobs Monday Support Club visits Awayadays, City Sightseeing Norwich

Yesterday, our Norwich For Jobs Monday Support Club, enjoyed a sightseeing tour courtesy of David McMaster at Awayadays, City Sightseeing Norwich. The Norwich For Jobs Team, and our Monday Club members thoroughly appreciated this great gesture from David . Not only did our young vulnerable customers find it interesting, it is another step in developing their communication skills, self-esteem and group social interaction.

 

Chloe's Story

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.

Joe's Story

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

Norwich For Jobs visit The Feed.

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/

Norwich For Jobs celebrates New U achieving Gold Award

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.

Shane’s Story

In September 2017 Shane was referred by his Job Centre Plus Work Coach to the Norwich For Jobs Team to get additional support and help in finding a job.  Shane was 24 and had never worked and with his ADHD, he’d had a challenging time at school.
