Former Keelham staff invited to employment and recruitment event

A free event is being held at Skipton Town Hall next week for local people who need support to find a new job, following the closure of Keelham Farm Shop.

The shop shut its doors suddenly on 28th December, with administrators then confirming last month that no buyer could be found, leaving all staff redundant with effect from 18th January.

In response to those affected by the closure an employability and recruitment event will be held in the Concert Hall at Skipton Town Hall next Thursday (8th February) between 10am and 1pm.

The Town Hall has donated a room so that local providers and employers can come together to offer their practical help and support at no cost for all those workers affected by the closure of Keelham.

A spokesperson said: "This event has been set up first and foremost for ex-Keelham Farm staff but is an open public event for anyone to drop in. Entry is free and all the services, information, follow up support has no cost attached. This is to support anyone locally needing help to move towards employment or looking for work."

Among the support on offer will be CV reviews and CV writing support, help with money management and debt, information about training courses, benefits, and in-work support for those with health conditions or disabilities. There will also be local health and wellbeing support services available to chat to.
