Unlocking Possibilities event for job-seekers
Step Into Work and Careers at Joined Up Care Derbyshire have been working closely in partnership with Derbyshire BME Forum since 2020 and the successful launch of the BME Respite Sitting Service. This partnership has continued through efforts to develop support that more closely addresses the needs of individuals within black and minority ethnic (BME) communities and with the aim of improving engagement from these communities in employment opportunities within health and social care. The partnership now includes Links CVS, Derbyshire County Council, DWP and East Midlands Chamber.
As a further initiative to take forward this important work and widen participation, we can now announce an exciting and innovative event that will take place in Chesterfield on Thursday 13 July.
The ‘Unlocking New Possibilities’ event will take place in the main campus of Chesterfield College from 10am to 2pm and will feature employers from three key sectors – health and social care, construction and hospitality.
Although the event is targeted at individuals within BME communities and from the memberships of 11 Community Associations from Chesterfield and the surrounding area, it is fully inclusive and will attract attendance from across the whole community.
Please view the event poster for more details – we hope to see you there.
