Lord Brett McLean Chairman of the FSB and County’s Economic Advisory Board has teamed up with Avanta Hastings to launch a new employment initiative “100 jobs in 100 days”.
The official launch takes place on Monday 24th March at 11am at the Avanta offices at 6 Bank Buildings Hastings.
The event launch will welcome employers and representatives from both small and large businesses into the Hastings AVANTA ‘S HQ’s and over a complimentary buffet lunch will introduce these business people to Avanta clients seeking part or full time employment.
Businesses who will be attending include:- Checkatrade.com, Sainsbury’s, WH Smith, Co-op, Poundland, Hastings Direct, Azur Marina Pavilion, Observer Newspaper Group, Hastings Borough Council, Harcourt’s Tea House, XIII CONSULTANTS, FSB etc.
As an incentive to employers there will be a ‘back to work payment’ awarded to each business to the value of £ 2,700. 00 per employee.
Lord Brett McLean said ” Following the successful 100 apprentices in 100 days campaign launched last year by Eastbourne MP Stephen Lloyd I have decided to echo the initiative but with a difference – 100 real jobs in 100 days thus boosting local employment and economic development opportunities. If successful and there is no doubt that it won’t be; this scheme will then be launched as a nationwide initiative and I will be delighted as an ambassador for Avanta to ensure that this entire program is successful with Hastings and St Leonards on Sea being the flagship example for increased employment.
