If you’ve volunteered as part of the coronavirus lockdown over the last few months, helping to make sure the more vulnerable people in the community are looked after, you may be considering your next steps. It might be to do more volunteering, find employment or looking for a career change.
Help with finding work is at hand through Works Better. The team understands that this is a stressful time for job seekers and especially those who have recently been made redundant.
The support available includes:
- Help to apply for Universal Credit
- Advice on updating your CV
- Searching for jobs
- Preparing for interviews
- Support with Job Applications and much more.
Works Better is an employment support programme that has been designed to help residents in Kirklees tackle barriers into work and find new employment opportunities in the future.
Currently, due to Covid-19, services are only being delivered via telephone and digitally, to make sure they comply with government guidance and that residents can still access this crucial support.
To access support from Works Better you must be out of work or unemployed and be a Kirklees resident aged 18+
