Solihull Editorial 27th Feb, 2021   0

THE jobs frontline in Birmingham and Solihull has been boosted by another 300 work coaches to help people get back into work.

Minister for Employment, Mims Davies said: “This is a hugely significant milestone in our recruitment drive.

“We have now recruited 10,000 new work coaches, 300 of which are in Birmingham and Solihull.

“They will form the backbone of our bold and ambitious Plan for Jobs, with their expertise and guidance crucial in supporting jobseekers in Birmingham and Solihull in retraining, up-skilling or re-entering the workplace, as we build back better from the pandemic.”




The news comes after Solihull has been battered by rising unemployment through the Covid-19 pandemic with Job Centre chiefs predicting the situation is likely to get worse before it gets better.

The UK Budget on March 3 is set to outline the next stage in the Government’s Plan for Jobs including further detail on economic support to protect jobs and livelihoods across the UK.
