As part of our Foundation for Jobs campaign, this column is devoted to a young person so they can issue a "come-and-get-me" call to potential employers.

Name: Hannah Waistell

Age: 16 From: Barnard Castle

Looking for: A part-time job to begin with

Hannah went to Staindrop Comprehensive School and is studying on a L2 Public Services course at Darlington College.

She plans to go on to study on a L3 course and hopes to study law at university Her dream is to become a police officer with Durham Constabulary - ideally working with the Dog Unit "I would love to get a part time job but there isn't a lot of work around, especially in the run-up to Christmas as everyone is looking for work.

"I'm a really good worker, cheery and reliable and once someone shows me how to do something, I pick it up really quickly. I really want to be a police officer and I have spent some time with the drug dogs which was fascinating. I'm really enjoying my time at Darlington College and the course is helping me get ready for my career."

Anyone able to help Hannah is asked to call Barry Nelson on 01325 505075 or email
