An initiative to get young people in Moray into work has last-minute slots available.
Working with children’s charity Barnardos, DYW Moray has two opportunities for young people to start the programme in early 2019.
The scheme focuses on customer service and retail, and will take participants through three stages – pre-employability training, work experience and then employment.
Jill Armitt, chairwoman of the DYW Moray Board said: “This a unique and exciting project for Moray, supporting one of our key sectors in the area – retail.
“It is all about preparing young people for the work place by providing a structured programme that allows a young person to build on their customer service skills with the end goal being permanent employment with a local business.”
Sarah Baxter, DYW Moray Manager added: “The key aim of this programme is to get the young people into sustained permanent employment and provide them with the stepping stones to get them there.
“This programme is for any young person aged 16–24 who would feel they would benefit from it and has an interest in working in a customer service environment.
“The young person not only gets paid employment, but they get a customer service qualification which as well as work experience is what employers seek today.”
