LOCKDOWN

Due to the most recent lockdown, our hub is now closed for all activities/courses.

We hope to be back soon. In the meantime we are still at the end of the phone and any online activity, we will update on all our social media.

Please stay safe and take care everyone!

Look forward to seeing you all again soon…

PREPERATION ON RETURNING TO WORK!

 Big Local is setting up a programme to help you prepare for a return to work.

Even though we are now in the third national lockdown, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Vaccines are being rolled out, a trade deal with Europe is in place, and businesses, schools and clubs are starting the process of planning for a full reopening.

Lots of people will be looking for work later on this year. If you are one of those people now is the time to start planning your job search. Now is the time to put all of your preparations in place.

Maybe you need a new CV, or need a hand with online searches, or maybe you just want some interview practice.

Here at the big local we have set up a free, online job search preparation course. Anyone in the Worlds End and Lots Road area can sign up.

We will provide help with:

  • Setting up a Job Search Diary
  • Creating a job search suite with Google (Mail, Calendar and Drive)
  • A skills audit
  • CV help
  • How to write a covering letter
  • Retraining
  • Interview practice (Zoom based)

To sign up for this free course email vanessa@welr.org.uk or call the Big local on 07464971428.

The course will begin with an introduction zoom session on Tuesday 19th at 11.00 and run until the end of March. Places are limited so sign up now to avoid disappointment. The final date for sign-up is 31st January 2021.
