A CHARITY set up to improve communities has secured a contract to help youngsters find a job.

North Doncaster Development Trust (NDDT) is working with teenagers aged 16 to 18, offering free support to help them develop a career path and get on the jobs ladder.

Its YES (Youth Employability Support) advisors come up with individual action plans for those classed as a NEET - not in employment, education, or training.

A spokesman for NDDT said: “YES advisors can help prepare people to find a job by providing skills workshops, assisting with writing CVs and completing application forms, developing confidence in preparation for interview, and helping individuals overcome any personal barriers that may be preventing them from starting work.

“YES advisors assist individuals to access relevant training, work placements and volunteering opportunities, taking them on their first steps to a new job by gaining the skills and experience that employers require.”

NDDT, based at the Bentley Resource Centre in High Street was set up to help regenerate the borough and improve the economy.

It works directly with employers, matching up to date job vacancies with its clients’ skills and employment aspirations.

As part of the scheme run in conjunction with the Humber Learning Consortium, once a teenager finds a job they receive ongoing on the job support.
