In conjunction with Job Centre Plus and Building Better Opportunities (BBO) Removing Barriers / Rebuilding Lives, which is funded by The European Social Fund and The Big Lottery, thirteen job seekers completed a two week course to prepare them for roles in Waitrose at Banbury. Prior to the course, the participants were coached and mentored by their BBO coaches.
The candidates enjoyed a tour of the facilities and a very informative Q & A session with Partners at Waitrose Brackley. This was aimed at giving participants a flavour of what to expect in a modern Waitrose branch. They also learnt more about the many benefits of being a Partner.
Many of the candidates are now totally engaged for the Group assessment and interviews for Banbury, which are now taking place.
