Free breakfast events raise profile of job opportunities in Carmarthenshire


A series of successful events held by Carmarthenshire Communities First Team and Jobs Growth Wales are helping to raise the profile of work experience and apprenticeship opportunities for the young.
The events offered a free breakfast across a variety of venues across the Llanelli and Ammanford cluster * to discuss work experience and apprenticeship opportunities for the young.
They proved so popular that an extra breakfast session is planned for Monday, March 10, at Llanelli Library between 10am – 12pm.
The aim is to help 16-24 year olds that are job ready but have had difficulty securing employment by offering exclusive job placements, paid at or above the national minimum wage for a minimum of 25 hours per week.
Communities First Jobs Growth Wales Mentor Hannah Evans said:” We are committed to helping young people get back on their feet. These events have been going really well and are attracting lots of people.”
The programme aims to create employment that can be sustained after the funded period, and employers are supported to continue the jobs beyond the first six months.
Executive Board Member for Regeneration and Leisure, Cllr Meryl Gravell, said: “I was very pleased to hear about the success of these events. We now need to build on this to help get even more young people back into work.”
