Bury St Edmunds Job Centre Voluntary Jobs Fair

Local Links has taken part in the voluntary jobs fair at Bury St Edmunds Job Centre, promoting active travel to staff and Job Centre users. Speaking to over 85 people who attended the fair about various sustainable travel options that are available to them when starting a new job, going to an appointment or interview. We found that lots of people were not aware of the variety of active travel options that were available. Particularly Suffolk Car Share, which is free to sign up, whether you are the driver or passenger. As well as travel planning websites such as Suffolk on Board using the personal journey planner. This covers all areas of green travel, including walking and cycling. Read more

Suffolk Car Share case study from Bury St Edmunds Job Centre

When asking Nikkita how she decided to start car sharing with her colleague, she explained, "We had been friends when we worked together previously. When I found out that she was transferring to Bury St Edmunds, I immediately asked if she wanted to lift share."

Nikkita also mentioned that she enjoys the company and the extra money. She added, "My friend gives me £3. Initially, this was to cover the cost of parking if we had to pay, but she continued even after she got a permanent space." Read more
