Employment Street #EmploymentSt

Held at the Handsworth Fire Station Cllr Narinder Kaur Kooner, working with South & City College Birmingham, Business in the Community and Handsworth Wood CDT.

The Lord and Lady Mayoress of Birmingham will officially open the event at 10am.

Cllr Kooner said: “When I was campaigning to be re-elected, people asked me time and time again: Will you help me get a job? I’m thrilled that ‘Employment Street’ is now all set for 4 April.

“The great thing is that actual jobs, apprenticeships and training will be available on the day to those who impress the employers taking part.

“Hundreds of people came to a similar event at the fire station back in 2011, and I’m sure that this one will be very well supported by the local community. We’ve got a really broad range of employers, looking to employ people of different ages, skills and backgrounds.

“I’m very grateful to Business in the Community and to the Handsworth Wood Community Development Trust for supporting the event, as well as to West Midlands Fire Service for providing the venue and such enthusiastic help.”
