Leeds job shop relocates to offer more services under one roof


The Leeds Tunstall Road Job Shop will be closing its doors this week and reopening at the Dewsbury One Stop Shop next week as part of a move to relocate important services under one roof.



From Thursday 5 September the job shop will be relocated alongside other services such as the Credit Union, housing services, health and library services.



The job shop will continue to offer the same service including job searches, CV advice and interview techniques and careers advice.



Councillor Lucinda Yeadon, Leeds City Council executive board member with responsibility for leisure and skills said:



“As part of making our services more accessible to everyone in the city we are moving a number of job shops into existing one stop centres.



“The service will remain the same, but will be located with a number of other council and health services which will allow people to access much more in one location.



“With young people receiving their exam results for both A Levels and GCSEs recently, job shops are a great starting place for those looking to move into the world of work.



“Job shops are an important part of helping unemployed people and those looking for new jobs to access available live jobs and in addition any advice they need about the recruitment process.”



The job shop opening times will be 9am – 4pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday and 9am -3pm on Wednesdays. For more information call 0113 395 7373.
