AN event which aims to help young Droitwich people find work will be held next week.

Festival Housing Group, which has an office in Droitwich, is hosting a ‘Just the Job’ workshop at the Malvern Vale Community Centre on February 21.

The group manages around 6,000 homes and is inviting any of its tenants aged between 16 and 25 to go along to the event, with transport being provided for people from Droitwich.

Resident involvement officer Donna Flecknell said that the day would include a ‘speed dating’ session where youngsters could talk to a variety of professionals and trades people.

“They will be able to get a flavour of what it is like to work in various careers such as plumbing, catering or housing,” she explained.

“We will also be giving advice on filling in application forms and offering on-going mentoring help.”

Festival Housing carries out a wide range of community initiatives aimed at helping its tenants to find work, training and voluntary opportunities.

Anyone interested in attending the event should contact Donna Flecknell on 01684 579361or email
