A ‘pop-up’ job shop in Aylesbury is aiming to help young people find work.

The temporary shop, based in Hale Leys shopping centre between Next and Accessorize, has been set up by the county council in partnership with the district council, Bucks Business First and Connexions.

If offers people aged 16 to 24 the chance to chat with experienced advisers and offers access to job opportunities, interview advice, careers guidance and CV writing help.

County council education and skills chief Mike Appleyard said: “It’s a tough job market for young people at the moment. This job shop will help arm them with practical, useful skills, which should give them a head start when they are job-hunting.”

The job shop opens on July 4 (2pm to 7pm), July 5 (10am to 4pm) and July 6 (10am to 2pm).
