Employment Support is becoming Community Skills

Free information, advice, and guidance for tenants wishing to improve their skills and opportunities.

Every journey is unique. Sometimes there are opportunities ready for us to seize, sometimes there are setbacks and things don't go as planned.

“I do recommend the employment support service and if it was not for Julia’s help I would not be where I am now, in a lovely job.”

 “I just wanted to thank you for the Step by Step course and the effort you have put in. Feeling proud of myself and I’ve not felt so confident about things for a very long time…and for that, I thank you guys more…”

CV writing, job searching and interviews

Looking for work can feel like a real struggle, especially when things don’t move as quickly as you’d like.

One of the best ways to use your time between jobs is to refresh your CV and make sure it accurately reflects your skills, experience and aspirations. We can help you review your CV and give you advice on how to make it stand out from the crowd! If you already have a great CV, you might be looking for help on how to prepare for an interview. We can give you some great techniques on getting ready for an interview and setting yourself up for success on the day.
