Job support for employers affected by COVID-19

If you are an employer who has urgent vacancies, the County Durham Jobs Fuse service can help you to promote your vacancies and connect you with people in County Durham who are available to start work. They can also support you if you are due to make redundancies, contact the service to find out about the careers advice and additional support available for your staff.
