Lincolnshire charity to host Skegness roadshow in hunt for work experience opportunities with businesses

THE Lincolnshire charity, Linkage Community Trust, is set to host a roadshow in the Hildreds Shopping Centre in Skegness tomorrow (Tuesday).

The roadshow aims to target employers in the county to engage employers.

The event, which will feature Linkage’s employment staff and service users, will include information on the support provided by Linkage for employers who offer work experience placements or those who recruit people with learning disabilities.

During the roadshow, the service users will be offering local businesses one to two hours’ work to demonstrate their skills and abilities.

Linkage already works with a range of different employers, from major supermarkets to nursing homes across the county on both providing work experience and ultimately securing paid work.

Carole Fossett, HR Manager, Tesco Skegness, said: “It gives people the opportunity to broaden their horizons in our busy and stressful environment. Being such a community-oriented retailer, developing relations with charities such as Linkage is important to Tesco.”
