PREMIER Foods in Worksop opened its doors to young unemployed people to help get them into work.

The initiative is part of Feeding Britain’s Future – Skills for Work Week, a nationwide campaign to tackle youth unemployment.

Working with Jobcentre Plus, Premier Foods ran a series of informative and practical workshops on CV preparation, completing a job application and interview techniques.

The young people got the chance to watch the food production process and speak to employees about their own job seeking experiences and roles.

Amy Brown, local human resources manager, said: “This is an exciting campaign that is helping to mobilise the young unemployed in our area.”

“Our long employment history means that we are aware of the challenges that the long-term unemployed are facing.”

Bassetlaw MP John Mann added: “I am delighted that Premier Foods is helping to tackle the serious issue of youth unemployment.”
