Skills and employment


If you have been made redundant or you are at risk of redundancy, we can provide the support you need.

Support for businesses that need to make people redundant is also available.  

Employment support available

If you are facing or going through redundancy you can contact us through our Emergency Response Portal. You can submit your CV through the portal and access employment support via a Work Zone mentor. Our mentors can support with:

  • One to one employment mentoring to help you shape your CV, job search and prepare for interviews
  • accessing tools to assess your skills and identify any gaps
  • suggesting training courses to update your skills
  • links to local employers who are recruiting or offering work trials
  • links to specialist careers guidance
  • information on benefits advice and access to support
  • directing you to health services
  • advice on starting up a business or going self-employed

You can also join a Job Club at one of our Work Zones where you will be guided by an Employment Mentor through the process of searching and preparing for work. 

Our services are free and can be tailored to suit your needs. If you would like to discuss your needs in confidence, please contact us.
