Community Employment Advisors

Our community employment advisor helping a woman find a job online

If you're looking for a job or trying to find work, our Community Employment Advisors are a must.

If you've recently lost your job, are looking to get back into employment after a career break or maternity, or you're looking to start work for the first time, our team of advisors can give you all the help and advice you could need at our regular work clubs held right across the district.

Our skilled advisors can help you find jobs online, offer guidance on how to write a CV and apply for jobs, offer interview skills and tips, and help you find the right training course.

Our Community Employment Advisors can also put you forward for WDH’s Training for Employment Programme which offers up to six months paid employment in an outdoor role for adults who are unemployed and living within a WDH property. For more information about the programme and how to apply please visit our Training for Employment page.

Currently our Community Employment Advisors have helped more than 4,500 people, assisting over 2,000 into training and over 1,400 into employment.
