Young people in Corby can pick up more than a bargain at Barnardo’s store in Oakley Vale.

Store manager Nick Farrant is offering youngsters an eight-week work experience programme to enhance their CVs and help improve their job prospects.

Volunteers who join the scheme will get a comprehensive grounding in retail, covering areas such as stock control, operating the till and dealing with customers.

At the end of the eight weeks successful candidates will be given a reference they can use to secure work or improve their chances of securing other training opportunities.

The store, in Butland Road next to the Tesco store, is open seven days a week, from 9­am to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday and 10­am to 4pm on Sundays.

Volunteers can choose how many hours they work.

For further information or for an informal chat about the scheme, call Nick on 01536 744823.
