Luton Borough Council’s Prevention and Early Intervention Team and Marsh Farm Futures are launching a brand new Job Club for 16 -19 year olds on Tuesday 24 July 2012 at Futures House, Marsh Farm, Luton.
The Job Club will run every Tuesday from 2pm – 4pm at Futures House and will deliver practical support to all young people wanting to get into full time and part time work, apprenticeships or training. They will receive help at every step; from exploring career ideas; finding vacancies or opportunities to all the way through the application and interview stages and beyond.
Cllr Waheed Akbar, Executive Member with responsibility for children’s services said: “We are providing a relaxed and informal venue where 16 -19 year olds can receive information, advice and guidance from knowledgeable and friendly personal advisers without the need to arrange an appointment. If young people are not in employment, education or training, the job club is the perfect solution to improve their chances of getting employed.”
Ishaq Kazi, Projects Development Manger from Marsh Farm Futures commented: “This initiative organised in partnership with Luton Borough Council is another example of our continued efforts in securing the delivery of services for the benefit of local residents.
Mohammed Rafi CEO Marsh Farm Futures said: "As part of Marsh Farm Futures’ commitment to the economic well-being of young people, we are determined to help the youth become employable and support them if they are considering or taking the entrepreneurial route as a way of becoming self employed."
