Workwise

If you are seeking employment or training; or if you are looking to change your job, we can help you.

We can help you overcome many challenges including, lack of work experience, suitable qualifications or confidence in applying for work, to redundancy or loss of work.

CV writing: We can support you in creating a CV, and if you already have one, we can review this with you. We will ensure that you stand the best possible chance of being noticed by employers.

Jobs: We can assist you with identifying your many skills and matching them to suitable job vacancies. We will help you to build your confidence if needed and will provide support with job applications. When you are successfully through that stage, we will help you with interview techniques including doing mock interviews if you need this.

We update our Facebook page (opens in new window) with local “hot jobs” on a weekly basis and use this to inform you of any job fairs or other similar events -

Training: We can provide you with advice on suitable training and support in enrolling on appropriate training programmes.

Personal Development Grant: We offer a Personal Development Grant to help people to address any financial barriers to employment. You can apply for a discretionary grant of up to £200 if you are on benefits. The grant is quick and easy to apply for.

Money: We understand that people sometimes experience financial difficulties, and we can help you to get appropriate advice. This can include budgeting, debt advice, assisting you in finding better utility deals, and in opening a bank account.

We can also assist you in completing a benefits calculation, to show you how income from employment will affect your finances.

Digital skills: We can help you to get the support you need regarding digital skills, which includes how to:

· use a tablet, computer or phone

· access and use the internet to meet your own personal needs

· effectively use social media and jobsites to look for work.
