A Government minister has praised the work of The Sun section Sunemployment.
The Sun launched Sunemployment three years ago and the NI title has now taken a staggering 75,000 people out of the dole queue and helped them back into work.
Each year The Sun has had more than 300,000 positions on offer on the Sunemployment weekly page, website and ads in the paper.
Last year more than 7,000 readers flocked to Sunemployment roadshows.
They took place in Newcastle, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol and London, and in excess of 1,000 readers landed new positions or work trials.
Employment Minister Mark Hoban said: “Jobs don’t just fall on to your lap, you need to go out and grasp opportunities wherever they are.
“That’s exactly what these people did with Sunemployment and I am delighted to hear of their successes.”
Sunemployment editor Jane Hamilton (pictured below) said: “Sunemployment is one of the longest-running and most successful campaigns The Sun has ever run – and it’s betting bigger and better each year.
“I’ve had a pile of Christmas cards from readers we’ve helped land work and it’s such a pleasure to see how The Sun has transformed their lives. Sunemployment shows the power of tabloid journalism to be a force for good in readers’ lives.”
