Way2Work case study: Damascus Rose Sweets

A Derby sweet maker has achieved his ambition of selling his tasty creations to the public thanks to the support of Derby City Council’s Employment Hub.

The Derby Employment Hub only opened in March, to support residents who have specific challenges when it comes to finding work, and despite the restrictions placed on its work by the Covid19 pandemic, it has already helped a significant number of participants back into employment.

Hazem Khadra, who makes traditional Arab sweets with a distinctly modern twist, is one local resident who has benefitted from the Hub and is now using the skills he learnt in Syria to run his own business in Derby.
