Find a job

Having a job isn’t just about earning a living. Work brings a sense of belonging and purpose, confidence and self esteem.

Last year we helped people just like you to find a job or stay in work through our range of ‘back to work’ services.

We will guide you on your journey from advice on benefits to CV writing. We can offer support to boost your confidence to give you the best chance of getting the job you want.

How can we help?

Providing clients with information and advice in person, via email or telephone or other options open to them.

Using short drop-in interviews, an extended interview or a series of face-to-face interviews, requiring a high level of counselling skills, we help you interpret information and choose the most appropriate course of action.

Building up and maintaining knowledge of information rescources on education, training and work in order to signpost you to the information you need.

Collecting, updating and producing information on local opportunities or in a particular employment sector; working along local DEA’s and Job Centre Plus’s.

Referring you to other agencies, such as government agencies, learning and training prioviders or specialist organisations, and advocating on your behalf where necessary.

Undertaking outreach work, such as visiting community groups to talk about learning opportunities.
