“Boston Jobcentre and Nacro have worked together for about 10 months. We agreed to run a programme aimed at their 16-19 year old students to give them opportunities to gain employment. We have an agreement to allocate interview slots to Nacro students, for employers interviewing at the Jobcentre. Your staff have sent a high calibre of applicants, many of whom have secured jobs. Feedback from employers speaks highly of the preparation undertaken by the Nacro students and the way they present themselves at interview.

As the relationship has developed, Boston Jobcentre has provided other opportunities for the students, such as factory tours for Feeding Britain’s Future, and, for those eligible, a work experience opportunity at the Jobcentre.”
