First Trust Bank is holding a business showcasing event in its Lurgan branch on August 15 and 16.
These events allow the bank’s business customers to display their businesses and to sell their products and services to the bank’s customers from within the bank branch.
It is the bank’s ongoing ethos to support small-medium enterprise (SME) business customers in any way that they can. In the coming weeks, four First Trust Bank branches in Lurgan, Portadown, Newry and Armagh will open up their showcasing space to local training agency, Wade Training Ltd. The agency is committed to quality training, with almost 30 years of experience in the field, mentoring and supporting young people and adults into further education and employment.
“Our ultimate goal is increasing employment opportunities,” said Wade Training’s Paula Breen. “We would like to heighten our profile and in particular need support from local employers to provide valuable work experience placements. Government subsidies are also available.”
