Seaham business hosts open day to help young people into work

A Seaham business is helping young people get into work with support from a Durham County Council-led initiative.

ResQ, a contact centre based on Spectrum Business Park, is holding a recruitment open day on Friday, 2 March for anyone over 18 who is interested in finding out more about the job opportunities on offer.

The day is being supported by DurhamWorks, a partnership project led by Durham County Council, which is part funded by the European Social Fund and Youth Employment Initiative.

As well as finding out more about the sales advisor roles, the open day will also give those aged 18-24 who aren’t in employment, education or training the chance to speak to DurhamWorks advisors.

They can provide support for young people by working with them on their CV, boosting their confidence and helping to prepare for an interview.

Salaries for the roles at ResQ start at £16,444 basic pay, with the potential to earn over £30,000 with commission.

DurhamWorks has already placed more than 20 people into roles with ResQ and they are confident this will increase following the recruitment day.

Sally Jameson, head of talent at ResQ, said: It’s amazing what a smile, friendly attitude and desire to make a positive impact can have when welcoming potential recruits to our business.

“Working together with DurhamWorks, we are opening doors together and helping people make the right career choices.”
