How can we help?


One-to-One Tailored Advice

We’ll start by matching you to one of our Advisors who has the most expert knowledge and skills for your situation. We’ll then present you with a range of appropriate support available to you.

You may only require help in one area or you may want support or training across a range of subjects. You decide.

Some of the core support we offer includes;

Employability Skills

  • Online Tools - improve your digital awareness and learn how to access and effectively use all the latest digital tools available.
  • Applications – build your knowledge on the various formats employers can use for their application process. Understand how to approach an application so that you can focus your time and effort in the most effective way.
  • CV – learn how to build your own compelling CV so that it stands out and that you have the skills to keep it fresh, up to date and relevant as you progress through your work life.
  • Job Search – learn how to effectively set up and manage your job search activities so that you are the first to hear about new jobs, are notified about the right jobs, and most importantly, so you don’t miss an opportunity.
  • Interview Preparation – learn how to prepare yourself for the big day and give yourself the best chance of success. Following just a few basic principles makes a huge difference so that you can feel confident going into every interview.
