A job café opened this week to help people who are struggling to find work.
The drop-in café opens at the Queen Mary Centre in Queens Road, Wisbech, for two hours each Monday from 10am-noon.
The three month pilot scheme, which has the support of Fenland District Council, the Ferry Project, Circle Roddons and Cambridgeshire County Council. backs up the services provided by Jobcentre Plus.
Staff from various organisations deal with any job-hunters’ enquiries, including giving career advice and information on training, skills courses and volunteering.
They also help people draw up their CVs and look for jobs online.
