Careers Advice and Guidance

If you’re looking for work, a new job or new skills for a career change, we can support you. We have a long history of helping people like you to transform their lives by supporting them with job searching, skills for employment and qualifications.

Our programmes are designed to support people with complex lives and will provide one-to-one mentoring* or careers clinics* and support around barriers to work which might include health, finances and improving your skills. We aim to enable you to overcome challenges, enjoy learning, access training and education and gain employment.

*Please note that places are limited so booking is essential.

You are eligible for support for up to three months as part of the Rise2Thrive project if you are economically inactive, which is any of the following:

  • claiming a health related benefit that means you don’t have to job search
  • not working, but not claiming benefits
  • retired but interested in going back to work
  • a full time student, coming to end of their course
  • returning to work after bringing up a family or being a full time care

We can also help you if you are in work but are experiencing challenges in the workplace and need support to thrive.
