The Hub has been launched in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and will help improve employment outcomes or prospects of future employment outcomes for long-term unemployed individuals and groups facing the most complex and intractable barriers to work. Initially, the hub is targeting 16-24-year-olds and will provide support to help them access or move closer towards employment. The Youth Hub is part of the UK Government’s £30bn Plan for Jobs. Jobseekers across the town can now get extra help to find work, reskill for alternative careers, and access training opportunities.
As part of the Youth, Community & Employability Hub, Rotherham United Community Sports Trust will provide personal career guidance appointments where we will create individualised action plans for all individuals. Working with various partners, local organisations and local employers we hope a joined up approach can support customers to increase their chances of been offered interviews, help them overcome barriers to employment and subsequently secure employment in the region.
In the short term, these sessions will be delivered remotely due to government guidelines, however we are looking forward to welcoming individuals to the New York Stadium
where we have developed a purpose-built facility, boasting meeting rooms, computers, catering facilities and equipment for social interaction.
