More than 200 Northampton PaperlinX employees made redundant when the firm collapsed last month are being invited to a drop-in session to help them find a new job.

The Moulton Park firm was placed into administration on April 1 and trading was ceased at 14 of its 19 sites across the country.

A total of 240 staff at both its head offices and another PaperlinX centre in Brackmills have been made redundant in the past month.

Today Northampton Borough Council has announced it will hold a drop-in session at The Guildhall to help the former employees find new work.

Organisations on hand with advice will include the Department for Work and Pensions, TCV Employment and Training Services as well as the Citizen’s Advice Bureau.

Former employees will be able to get help with job searches and CV writing, plus advice on available employment and training, council tax arrears and bailiffs, HMRC debt, maximising income and how to attain court representation for rent or mortgage arrears.

The council will also have representatives available to talk about revenue and benefits as well as offering debt counselling.

The session will be held from 9.30am to noon in the Jeffrey Room.

No booking is required.
