Hill start assists job seekers

Finchley-based employment advice centre Resource has established a free support service in Stamford Hill.

The launch follows a successful pilot seminar run by Resource at the Brenner Community Centre which also involved Jewish Care and Agudas Israel Community Services.

Resource will provide a comprehensive advice and training programme to help members of the strictly Orthodox community into employment. One-to-one sessions will be held with experienced consultants and there will also be training seminars.

Established 20 years ago, Resource and its team of over 40 volunteers helps more than 500 Jews into the workplace annually. Another satellite service has been operating in Redbridge.

Executive chair Emma May said: “The service in Stamford Hill is in response to a growing demand within the area. It reflects the increasing need for our service among the wider Jewish community — a demand that unfortunately shows no sign of diminishing.”
