BULWELL was the first port of call for an innovative ‘Keep Nottingham Working’ (KNW) roadshow.
The aim is to make sure people of the city find out what opportunities are out there, and to give the unemployed the support they need to find a job.
The KNW campaign is being rolled out jointly by Nottingham City Council and JobCentre Plus.
The road show is visiting six parts of Nottingham in just over two months and it kicked off its tour on Bulwell Market Place.
The council hopes the campaign will build on the success of its Jobs Plan, which pulls together initiatives to help get people back on the employment ladder.
To date, more than 2,000 people have benefited from the campaign. Many have found paid work, are getting on-the-job experience and are having a chance to gain recognised qualifications.
Others are building up their confidence by volunteering with a number of organisations across the city.
The roadshow gave an opportunity to meet advisors about the latest jobs and training available.
Job seekers were able to find out about apprenticeships and work experience opportunities, get information about training and receive impartial advice on welfare and claiming benefits.
