Skills for the homeless
8:00am Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
Homeless people have a chance to meet Oxford businesses and boost their job prospects at an employment event today.
As well as meeting potential employers, they can take part in skills classes such as pizza-making and bricklaying, run by national homelessness charity Crisis.
Businesses will be able to meet potential employees and discuss the types of jobs they need to fill.
Last year the charity helped more than 59 people in Oxford find paid roles across the catering, hospitality, construction, social care and retail sectors.
The Employment Platform event takes place from 11am to 2pm at the Old Fire Station, 40 George Street.
