On September 5 the month-long Festival of Opportunity aimed at boosting jobprospects for young people in Erewash begins.
I hope that all local businesses will look to supporting the Opportunities for Erewash incentive by giving consideration to allowing young persons the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in the workplace.
The future of the business community is dependent on the passing of skills and experience to young people who will be the entrepreneurs of the future.
Local businesses can only profit from gaining an enhanced workforce for the future.
