I wonder if you could help?
Part of my role with Affinity Sutton is to look for vacancies, apprenticeships and work placements for people that we are helping to support into work.
Our service is free to companies, and voluntary to the residents we work with.
At this moment in time, I am looking for an Apprenticeship for a young lad within a “hands on” type role, a Work placement for up to eight weeks for someone who eventually wants to repair computers and work within this environment, and have several people looking for warehouse vacancies.
I’d like to link more with the businesses of Burgess Hill to see if we can support them find ideal candidates for positions they have.
Is there anyway I could attend a meeting, or potentially be including within your newsletter?
Last year nationwide we helped over 1,000 people into work, and over a 100 apprentices

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
