Premier Foods, home to some of Britain’s best loved brands, will open its doors from 17 to 21 September to young unemployed people and provide them with an opportunity to gain pre-employment skills to help get them into work.

Premier Foods, home to some of Britain’s best loved brands, will open its doors from 17 to 21 September to young unemployed people and provide them with an opportunity to gain pre-employment skills to help get them into work.

The initiative is part of Feeding Britain’s Future – Skills for Work Week, a nationwide campaign organised by the Institute of Grocery Distribution, which has united the food and grocery industry in an effort to tackle youth unemployment.

Working in partnership with Jobcentre Plus across the UK, Premier Foods will run a series of informative and practical workshops on CV preparation, completing a job application and interview techniques as well as chance to observe the food production process and speak to employees about their own job seeking experiences and current roles.

As Britain’s leading food producer, Premier Foods welcomes the opportunity to take part in the campaign and will be working with young unemployed people at ten of its sites across the country. 

Becky Ivers, Director of Organisational Development, said: “This is an exciting campaign that is helping to mobilise the young unemployed in our area.  We are very aware of the challenges that the long-term unemployed are facing and we are looking forward to providing advice, support and training to young people who are struggling to find work.”
