The last few months has seen a professional relationship flourish between Doncaster College, Job Centre Plus and supermarket Morrisons, to offer local people the opportunity to secure jobs with the retail giant.

 

The Hub campus at Doncaster College in the town centre was used for extensive rounds of recruitment days for the new ‘M Local’ store located near Jct3 of the M18 and Carr Hill Industrial Estate.

 

More than 1500 candidates applied for the vacancies and were interviewed for a range of roles, with the successful applicants being enrolled onto a two week bespoke training course at The College - in order to prepare them for the final selection processes at the new store.

 

Kevin Cartlidge, Employability and Skills Manager at Doncaster College, explains: "The College is extremely proud to be part of this initiative as it forms part of our commitment to delivering training to meet local market needs."

 

Dave Horner from Job Centre Plus added, "We are delighted to be working in partnership with Morrisons and Doncaster College. Iit has provided a great support network to help train and prepare local unemployed people for jobs at the new store."
