New jobs club for young people in Harleston

A new and exciting jobs club for people aged 16-24 is to open in Harleston.

Following the success of the regular jobs club, Harleston Information Plus has set up the new club to offer specialist advice to young people living in and around Harleston and Diss.

The drop-in sessions will run every Thursday from noon to 2pm – with the first session being held on Thursday, September 27, at the Harleston Information Plus office in Exchange Street, Harleston – and will be open to all.

Lucy Marjoram, of Harleston Information Plus, said: 'We will be teaming up with local businesses and community groups to offer work experience, voluntary opportunities and taster sessions.'

Professional careers advisers will offer monthly sessions on a one-to-one basis while local employers will be providing group workshops covering the application process and answering interview questions with ease.
