Nick Clegg has written a piece for the Sun about jobs and helping people finding work. They have a Sunemployment campaign which aims to match people up with jobs in their area through a series of roadshows.
Every year, the Sunemployment campaign helps thousands of people find work. The roadshows that take place in the summer offer a chance to get advice and find out about opportunities.
Since 2010, the Government has helped to create over 1.3 million jobs in the private sector, across all sorts of sectors – from science to IT, communications to manufacturing.
These are jobs that have been created since our economy suffered a major heart attack. And it’s absolutely fantastic that the roadshows will be packed with companies who are ready to hire.
This summer’s roadshows are all about opening up opportunities. This is exactly what we need to see more of, especially for younger people looking for work. That’s exactly what I’m pushing with the Opening Doors campaign – getting more businesses to open up work experience, training schemes, apprenticeships to young people from all walks of life. And through the Youth Contract – our commitment to tackle youth unemployment – we are helping young people get jobs that last by offering, incentives for employers to take on young staff and providing support on skills, training and work experience.
Every week, I visit companies across the country that are creating jobs, thanks to money from the Government’s Regional Growth Fund. We aren’t throwing pounds at short term work – these businesses have plans for the future and they want to recruit talent that will make their business, better.
And the Liberal Democrats recently launched our ‘A Million Jobs for a Stronger Economy’ campaign, which highlights our success in helping to create more than a million private sector jobs and our determination to help create a million more. We want you to be a part of that.
Employers around the country are eager to hire – getting to a roadshow could give you the break you deserve.
