AN EVENT advertising opportunities has helped jobseekers get back into the workplace.

Jobseekers in Redruth were invited to an event, held in Chywoon Gardens, where they were able to find out about trade-based and customer care qualifications, as well as apprenticeships, work placements and paid work in the area.

The event was organised by Guinness Hermitage, a local affordable housing provider, and Emmdee Building Services Limited, which say they are keen to help jobseekers back into work.

Chris George, Guinness Hermitage property services manager, said: "We are committed to supporting our local communities, and we are pleased to be able to offer a number of employment and training opportunities to local people through partnerships with our contractors."

Julie, a resident of Guinness Hermitage housing in Redruth, said the event was a great success: "I'm really pleased I attended this event. I didn't know what to expect and it was good to find out that Guinness supports residents in so many different ways, such as work experience and help with benefits."

    That sounds absolutely great,but where are the cash incentives for people once they get a job?Okay it's a pat on the back' congratulations' from the DWP, then they say 'sorry but you've started a job working more than 16 hours per week we cannot give you any help etc'.Then what is one mean't to live until their first pay packet? Being paid weekly is bad enough by waiting for a week,but how is one mean't to live if your new job is monthly paid? It's all very well asking for a sub,but you would end up being just as worse off the following month,i think the DWP should look into this situation.
