A business breakfast and opportunity for people to meet potential employers is being held in Dersingham on Tuesday, June 21.

Dersingham Parish Council and the Dersingham Village Centre Association are working with The Skills Service to host the first Dersingham Works event at St Nicholas Church Hall in Manor Road.

Improved access to services is a key objective in the plans to replace the Church Hall with a new village centre.

The event starts with a Business Breakfast for local employers, sponsored by Swains International, from 7.30am. This will provide an opportunity for networking, sharing experience and finding out what is happening locally.

The key speakers are: Julie McLaughlin, HR director, Swains International; David Collingham, Dersingham Centre Association; Trevor Diack, BAE Systems; Janet Flood, West Norfolk Council.

Later, from 90am, the Employer Marketplace opens. Members of the public are invited to go along to meet local employers and training providers and get information on career opportunities available in the area.

There are a few spaces remaining for employers at the breakfast and the marketplace. If you are interested in attending, please contact Jacqui Farrell at The Skills Service by emailing jacqui.farrell@theskillsservice.co.uk or by phone on 07931 206628.

Sue Payne, parish council chairman said: “This event will help fulfil our ambition to provide information and advice to local residents, particularly our young people, so they can achieve their full potential in employment and other aspects of their lives.”

Dersingham Village Centre association chairman, David Collingham, added: “This is the inaugural Dersingham Works event, which we hope will pave the way for future local business and employment events held in support of the proposed new village centre project.”

Jacqui Farrell, The Skills Service, said: “This a great networking opportunity and is also a chance to provide valuable information to young people in our community. We would like as much participation as possible to ensure that this is an event that can continue into the future.”
