One-stop job seekers shop is open in Eastbourne

A NEW one-stop shop for jobseekers opened its doors this week.

Eastbourne Works, based in Langney Road, will provide access to information and advice which will enable people looking for work to make informed choices and receive tailored support.

Funding has come from the Learning and Skills Improvement Service and is a partnership between Sussex Downs College, the borough council, Job Centre Plus, 3VA, E-Deal and the Citizen’s Advice Bureau. David Hinton, the co-ordinator for the project, said, “This is a tremendous advance for Eastbourne and the surrounding area.

“We are particularly excited to be working closely with Eastbourne Chamber of Commerce and hope to be able to identify jobs with training via apprenticeship routes.”

The one-stop shop will be open from 9am to 5pm each weekday, and until 7pm on Wednesdays.

It will also be open from 9.30am to 12.30pm on Saturdays
