ABP in local training move

Beef firm ABP Doncaster aims to reduce unemployment in Barnsley and Doncaster by teaming up with a local training initiative.

The Community Shop calls itself a “social supermarket”, providing local people with advice, education and training to help them get their foot on the career ladder.

The partnership has already seen three people employed at ABP Doncaster.

Michelle Griffin, human resources manager at ABP Doncaster, commented: “The Community Shop training lasts six months and really helps local unemployed people to gain new skills in a wealth of areas, including CV writing, interview training and sector-specific training. We’re working alongside the initiative and Barnsley College to encourage local people struggling to find work to get involved and take the first steps to what could be a fantastic new career.”
