PICTURE GALLERY: Celebration of work experience project

A celebration took place at the View Hotel of MP Stephen Lloyd’s ‘100x3’ work experience programme for local people who are long-term unemployed.

Stephen said: “A packed event at the View Hotel celebrated the success of Eastbourne’s 100x3 work experience initiative. Our results are simply astonishing – 187 placements have been filled so far, with 60 people going on to employment. This means 32 per cent of local residents who had been long-term unemployed - a really difficult cycle to break – have now found new jobs because of our scheme.”
