Zebra Access is delighted to introduce new staff who will be working on the Black Country Futures project

Zebra Access successfully recruited a new Employment Officer and an English & Maths Tutor last week, to work on the new Black Country Futures project. This project is to support Deaf and Hard of Hearing people from the Black Country region and the surrounding areas into Employment and Education, therefore improving their self esteem/confidence. The project will provide a Job Club and English/Maths tutorials on a one to one basis or in small groups. More details about the project can be found here:

We are delighted to welcome the vastly experienced Bob Marsh (Employment Officer) and Deirdre Maguire (English & Maths Tutor) to Zebra Access and we are looking forward to working with them on this exciting project. 

Chris Beech, Project Development Manager, said 'Although the recruitment process has been difficult in these unprecedented times, I am delighted with the outcome and look forward to working with Bob and Deirdre in developing this unique project. Whilst the future remains uncertain for everyone, with lockdown restrictions in place, we will deliver this project online initially, starting from this week, with a view to restoring face to face support once it is safe to do so. Given that the job market will become much more competitive in the coming months, this project is perfectly placed to support Deaf and Hard of Hearing people in the Black Country region to develop their resumé and skills to enable them to be competitive in the employment market over the months and years ahead.'
