The Working Communities Project
The Council run a free, voluntary and confidential support service which is offered to all residents in the District. We provide advice, guidance and resources tailored to anyone leaving the Armed Forces to help you back into the workplace. Working together on a one-to-one basis, you and your advisor will create a realistic plan to help you find employment. Some of the things we can help you with are: searching for a job, preparing your CV, filling in application forms, interview techniques and advice about benefits. If there is something we are unable to help you with, we can put you in touch with the right people for support.
If you want to find out more about the Project or make an appointment to access support, please contact Mark Szadura, Community Employment Advisor:
