New NEXUS project launched by The Benjamin Foundation to help young unemployed in North Walsham

A local charity is launching a new service in North Walsham tomorrow (Friday) to help support young job seekers in the area.

The Benjamin Foundation have set up the NEXUS project to offer IT support and job advice to young unemployed people in the town.

Based at The Carpenters Arms in Market Street, the project is aimed at those who need a bit of guidance and help when looking for work and training.

A 'delighted' Marian Mehl, northern area youth services manager, said: 'After the closure of a similar service in the town, there are not many places to go to get job and training advice. I want to give [young people] the help they deserve with the hope they can find work or training.'

Service users will be able to use computers to search for job vacancies, receive one-to-one advice and support, such as how to improve their CV, help with filling in job applications and help with finding work experience.

The service is available for 16 to 25-year-olds on an appointment basis and there will be a drop-in service between 12.30pm to 1.30pm every Friday, starting this week.

The project has been set up with �5,000 of funding from The John Paul Getty foundation.
