A total of 30 young people are to be able to gain retail experience over the coming months.
The Julia’s House shops re-open on 12 April and the charity is to offer six month retail training placements for people aged 16 and 24 who are on Universal Credit.
The hospice charity is taking part in the Government’s Kickstart employment scheme, to help young people at risk of long term unemployment gain valuable skills.
The jobs will be in their high street shops across Dorset and Wiltshire as well as other areas of Julia’s House Retail, where the placements will join a training programme to help them gain experience and knowledge in different aspects of the charity retail sector.
Tracy Stanley, Julia’s House retail manager said, “The local community gives us such great support, it’s nice to be able to give something back. We’re really pleased to be able to offer placements to local young people and are looking forward to helping them get on their feet by providing retail training that we hope will prove valuable to them in their future careers. We know employment is challenging for young people at the moment and it’s been a difficult time for them, so we really wanted to contribute something that would make a difference locally. You never know, we could discover our Julia’s House shop managers of the future.”
Applicants will be required to work 25 hours a week on a rota basis and regular weekend working will be expected. Salaries will be paid by the Government and Julia’s House will be providing the training and experience.
