College to offer first job-match scheme

Derby College
Derby College

A college, based in Ilkeston and Morley, is the first in the East Midlands to join a programme which matches students with local jobs.

Derby College has teamed up with recruitment firm Reed and awarding body NCFE which have worked successfully at colleges elsewhere in the UK to offer a recruitment service.

The team of dedicated advisors from the partnership are now based at the college and will be sourcing jobs at local employers for students who want to work part-time while at college.

They also provide employability skills, CV and interview technique support for students as part of the college’s careers guidance scheme.
