TV focus

On 7 and 8 April 2016, Oxfordshire Employment was featured on both Radio Oxfordshire and BBC TV South Today – Oxford News. 

The item focused on the success we have had in delivering ‘hosted-out’ placements and is securing people long-term employment in these jobs.  Employment Team Leader Debbie Montgomery said; “Hosting out has been extremely successful and it enables people to get beyond the barriers to secure a long term job.”

Since starting it’s hosting out scheme, Oxfordshire Employment has been 100% successful in turning these opportunities into sustained jobs.
