Help was at hand for 16-year-old Jodi Humphreys when he went along to find out about jobs with training at a Dudley event.

The RSA Academy pupil took part in the first jobs fair of its kind organised by West Bromwich-based The Apprenticeship Works.

Together with the National Careers Service and Job Centre Plus, The Apprenticeship Works hosted the evening event at The Village hotel.

Jobs, with training, in engineering, customer service, warehouse and business administration were available at the event.

Venetia Hardiman, from The Apprenticeship Works, said: “Our job is to seek out young people and then put them into the right apprenticeships with good companies where we know they will get the right support and nine times out of ten a good job at the end of their year.”

The Apprenticeship Works acts as a broker and is one of only 13 government-backed brokerage schemes in the country.

Apprentices are employed by the agency with the employer paying a small weekly contribution and not having any of the worry of paperwork, HR or training costs.

Jodi Humphreys said: “I really want a job in sales and in particular in car sales. I want to get an apprenticeship and I hope this jobs fair will help me.”

Anyone who wants to find out more should call 0845 873 3855.
