Employment Support


Helping people to find employment is an important part of the Trust’s commitment to the local community. This project is funded by the European Social Fund and means that our team of qualified Employment Advisors work with job seekers to help them move forward, overcome their barriers and find good quality jobs. We pride ourselves on our friendly approach and our ability to understand what local people need to achieve success. Some of the things we can help with are:

  • Advice and Guidance
  • CV Building
  • Job Searching
  • Sourcing Work Experience
  • Application Forms
  • Interview Skills
  • Overcoming Barriers
  • and much more!
