on .


Young people are invited to join an online session to find out more about employment opportunities in Wiltshire this month.

The Wiltshire Youth Hub, part of Young Work Wiltshire, is hosting the event on Thursday, June 24 from 4pm for 45 minutes.

A sample of employers will talk about local employment opportunities and more information will be provided about the government's Kick Start programme. Job searching support tools will also be shared.

Cllr Laura Mayes, Wiltshire Council cabinet member for education and skills said: "There are young people out there who are unsure what they want to do in terms of education or career and need support to look at the opportunities available to them.

"This has been a challenging year for all young people and this will be a great chance to message in questions, hear from people in the workplace and come away with some ideas on next steps."
