Half a million people have been affected by redundancy, one in four workers have been furloughed, and many businesses have been forced to permanently close their doors.
Our mission has always been to empower people to reach their full potential, and to support them in overcoming challenges to build a better future. We realise that for most people, finding a job is their utmost priority, but in the current climate, that might be far from easy. Because of this, we're offering:
We understand that money is tight and every penny counts, and that’s why we’ve created a £100,000 fund that will go towards subsidising those who are looking to upskill or retrain.
From counselling to teaching to childcare, we have a range of professional, accredited courses to choose from, whether you’re looking to embark on a new career or gain a qualification that will give your CV a boost.
In collaboration with Pertemps and Hinterview, we’ve created a FREE short course containing the three crucial elements of transitioning from unemployed to being hired!
When you enrol on the Job Ready Pack, you’ll gain exclusive access to expert knowledge and advice in the following areas:
First, we’ll walk you through practical guidance on how to deal with your situation, understand your legal rights, and discover your options for financial support. You’ll also look at life after redundancy, and the actionable steps you can take to move on to bigger and better things.
Because the average time an employer spends looking at your CV is five to seven seconds, this section is designed to help get your CV to the top of the pile. Written in conjunction with recruitment specialists Pertemps and Hinterview, you’ll learn exactly what to include and where, common CV mistakes to avoid, and inside tips and tricks you won’t find elsewhere.
Finally, you’ll learn what to research before your job interview, what to do in the interview, and how to follow up with employers afterwards. There’s also practise psychometric test questions, so you can get to grips with some of the ways employers will test your abilities. Additionally, you’ll get advice on how to nail virtual interviews from video recruitment specialists, Hinterview, along with their tips for creating a video CV to give yourself an edge over other competitors.
This bitesize course is designed to be engaging, consisting of interactive modules and videos, which you’ll have access to for one full year.
