'How Norwich For Jobs has helped me' by Kerry Stone

"Norwich for Jobs has helped me to find Work Experience in a School, which may lead to permanent work as a result. Also, Norwich for Jobs has helped me to find out about other support available locally. Norwich for Jobs has helped make me less nervous to talk to new people and I have made new friends and learnt new things." 

'Where are they now?' Nathan Shreeve-Smith

I joined the NFJ campaign back in 2012 after graduating. The campaign gave me a much needed boost to my CV and provided me with the tools and advice when looking for a Job. Three years down the road I now work as an Assistant Communications Advisor in London for an NHS organisation, supporting Hospital Trusts and aspire to progress into policy and political communication.

 

I hope to see the NSJ campaign rolled out to other areas of England, bringing together young people, local business and the local community with the aim of getting young people employed.     

'Where are they now?' Posy Cuthbertson

Since taking part in Norwich For Jobs, I’ve been lucky enough to have a few different jobs. Unfortunately, they punctuated a frustrating period of unemployment after I moved away from Norwich. It was my friends and family who helped me continue to apply myself, but the free advice from Norwich For Jobs and Jobcentre Plus that really taught me how to apply.

Big boost for Norwich for Jobs phase two

Norwich For Jobs: our New Year resolution gains momentum

Norwich For Jobs, the community project in Norwich which has now helped over 1,600 young people into work, has entered 2015 with a bang.

 

The project brought together over 20 local employers on Friday 9th January to join the effort to get even more youngsters into good opportunities.

 

Over 160 Norwich and Norfolk firms have already pledged their support and helped get 1,623 Norwich 18-24 year olds into work.  1,364 of these are in jobs, and the remainder in apprenticeships.
