YOUTH EMPLOYMENT SUPPORT

In conjunction with Durham County Council’s Durham Works programme, we help 16-24 year old NEETs into work.

Our advice and support is available to anyone in the East Durham area and is completely free of charge.

Our dedicated employment consultant, at our Novus Business Centres in Peterlee and Seaham, provides advice for young people who are Not in Employment Education or Training (NEETs).
