Expression of Interest

We’ve recently joined forces across North and Mid Wales Jobcentres to get ready for the influx of jobs coming our way from the Construction Industry.

To help us match job seekers with the jobs available, Jobcentres across North and Mid Wales are feeding into an Expression of Interest Database.  This records the Construction skills and trades held by job seekers. It’s a live database which is being updated all of the time as claimants sign onto or off benefit.

It also helps us to identify if we have people with skills and experience who perhaps no longer have the cards or tickets needed for the jobs available. In those instances, we’d work closely with local colleges to put the right training on for the individual, linked to the needs of the local labour market.

The Jobcentre can be very innovative in their approach to recruitment so if you have jobs but lack a strong workforce, please get in touch to see how we can work together.

Christmas shopping video with important message spreads festive cheer

A heart-warming Christmas tale with an important message has arrived in Denbighshire.

The two-minute festive film has been produced by Denbighshire County Council to showcase the wide range of local shops in the county.

The clip features the story of a family completing their Christmas shopping in Denbighshire with all gifts bought from local traders.

It also features students from Denbigh Stagecoach performing arts school singing at St Asaph Cathedral and stars Carys, a bespoke bear which was made by Sarah Chapman of Bilberry Bears in Llandegla.

The film has been released on the Council’s YouTube channel today (Thursday) and is also being shared across social media.

Leader of Denbighshire, Councillor Hugh Evans OBE, said: “The Council is proud to be supporting local businesses with this festive shopping video.

“This is a fantastic film with a heart-warming story and a really important message – shop locally this Christmas.

“All the businesses featured are based in Denbighshire and the film shows the huge range of products and services available in the county.

“Shopping locally is an enjoyable experience and firms offer a friendly and professional face-to-face service and go that extra mile for their customers.

“As a Council we want to see local businesses succeed as this ensures money spent locally stays in Denbighshire and helps create a thriving economy.

“The Council would like to thank all the residents and businesses of Denbighshire who made this film possible.”

More than 50 children, from Rhyl, Prestatyn, Ruthin, Bala, Corwen, Denbigh and St Asaph, aged six – to 17 from Denbigh Stagecoach performed in the film.

Jane Heckman, aged 54, of Trefnant, is the principle of the school, which also provided the actors who played the family.

She said: “Performing at St Asaph Cathedral was amazing. The atmosphere and acoustics were fantastic. It made the children feel Christmassy. It was a magical evening for everyone involved.

“The children were inspired by performing at the Cathedral.”

Mrs Heckman, who has been principle of the school for 11 years, added: “As a local business we were proud to support other businesses and the message to shop locally in Denbighshire.

“We want to support other local businesses.”

The video has been produced as part of the Council’s Economic and Community Ambition Programme which is delivering 16 high priority projects to support businesses in the county and attract further inward investment to Denbighshire.

Denbighshire has also been supporting businesses during the festive period with free parking in council-run car parks after 3pm, the #LoveLiveLocal campaign which supports shopping locally and the production of a Capital FM radio advert to encourage shopping locally.

The video was produced for the Council by Frozen Moon Productions.
