Help programme launched for workers
A comprehensive programme of free support co-ordinated by Bondholder Derby City Council will help workers facing redundancy to find new jobs, develop skills or start their own businesses.
The initiative, which includes online workshops and a virtual jobs fair, is being led by the Council as part of the Derby Economic Recovery Task Force's response to the COVID-19 crisis and will harness the expertise of partners from fellow Bondholder the East Midlands Chamber, Derby Adult Learning service, the National Careers Service, and the Department for Work and Pensions.
Councillor Matthew Holmes, Deputy Leader of Derby City Council said: “Derby is determined not to be beaten by this terrible virus. We are working hard with our partners to support businesses, attract investment and create new opportunities. We will do all we can to ensure that talented local workers are well-placed to benefit from those opportunities.”
