A new temporary job centre is set to open in Huddersfield Town Centre as part of a programme designed to provide additional support in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Huddersfield is one of 80 towns and cities across the country which will welcome the temporary centres. The new Job Centre will be on Trinity Street, Huddersfield at the site of the former ‘Bargain Buys’ store.
The temporary site is in addition to the existing JobCentreplus at Castle House, Huddersfield and will follow in its footsteps to provide support to job-seekers and help them into work.
Speaking about the nationwide rollout of temporary job centres; Minister for Employment Mims Davies said:
“With more new, temporary JobCentres in place in the heart of our communities, we can support even more people impacted by the pandemic to find work and progress into new roles.”
“We’ve already boosted our DWP Work Coaches by 10,000 – and with these new local JobCentres to operate from, we can drive forward our Plan for Jobs, creating fresh opportunities for people all across the country.”
As part of the national rollout, Halifax Leeds and Bradford will also see temporary centres open.
No official date has yet been given for the opening of the new centre on Trinity Street.
