CV campaign to tackle unemployment

FREE CV printing is being offered at a Scarborough store in a bid to tackle unemployment.

In an attempt to help local job seekers find employment, Cartridge World, in Seamer Road, is taking part in the national ‘CV Sorted’ campaign and is offering to print up to 10 copies of each customer’s CV free until March 31.

Jayne Colbeck, franchisee of the Cartridge World in Scarborough, said: “We recognise that the job market is tough, with fierce competition for most vacancies and that people looking for work need all the help they can get, which is why we’re offering this free service.

“Local residents have been overwhelmingly receptive to the campaign so far. We are encouraging customers to come in store and take advantage of this free service. Simply bring your CV to the store and we will happily print it for free.”

The campaign has been launched as UK unemployment figures hit 2.6 million with experts predicting figures will hit almost three million by 2016.
