The National Football Museum might be moving from Deepdale but the Preston Employment Partnership is moving in.


The employment service has taken office space at Preston North End to compliment its existing site on Church Street.

Since the start of 2009 the service has helped to put 200 local people into jobs and a further 120 into training.

Michelle Arthur, head of employment and enterprise at Preston City Council said:

The key to our service is building relationships with our clients to identify any barriers to gaining employment they may have, such as education or training needs, a disability or even child care issues. There are still jobs out there, and we can help you whatever your background or skills, even if you have not worked for sometime or have no experience at all.

Councillor Anthony Gornall, cabinet member for environment and regeneration added:

The economic downturn has increased the number of people looking for jobs, and can be a huge worry for people already feeling the effects of the credit crunch. We want people to know that help and advice is available from the Preston Employment Partnership, and that we are doing or very best to support any residents seeking work.

The Preston Employment Partnership offers free advice on job searching techniques, CV writing, job application form writing and interview techniques.
