The Department for Communities Jobs and Benefits office Newtownabbey, in partnership with Abbey Centre and the surrounding businesses, hosted information days at Abbey Centre on Thursday 21 September and Friday 22 September.
Staff from the Newtownabbey JBo Frontline Services, Employment Services, Preparation for Work and Improving Benefit uptake Teams, were joined by supporting organisations including Bryson Futureskills, Disability Action, PeoplePlus NI, Ashton Community Trust, Citizen’s Advice, Advice NI, Go On NI, Libraries NI, USEL, NOW, Princes Trust and Network Personnel.
Abbey Centre Manager, Mark Stewart said, ‘The event was a roaring success. Our housed retailers have a number of temporary, seasonal positions at this time of year and the Department for Communities really helped in marrying candidates with vacancies. The wealth of information and advice available during the two day event was phenomenal, bringing all agencies together to work towards a common goal.’
