May – The sector of The Month is Retail

posted in: Vacancies | 0

Each month we will focus on a new sector reflecting opportunities available in our area. To be clear our workshops are for customers only and places need to be booked in advance.

Zoom Retail Opportunities Workshop Online

20th May at 10 am

To provide customers with information about:

  • Some of the different types of roles in retail
  • Where you might expect to get employment
  • The skills and qualities you might need
  • Different routes into health and social care including future progression
  • Local labour market information in this sector
  • Tailoring CVs/job applications and how to apply

Please also find attached a range of opportunities being delivered for your information across the area.

Prefer a 121 appointment rather than a workshop?

We understand that customers often would prefer to speak to a careers adviser on a one to one basis.

Don’t forget to let us know when booking a one to one careers guidance appointment whether a face to face or phone appointment is preferable – venues available across the area

We can support customers to:

  • Explore their career options & aspirations
  • Understand the local job market & opportunities
  • Expand job searching expertise & resources
  • Develop or enhance their CV including guidance on how to get through digital tracking systems to reach the interview stage
  • Find courses to improve English, Maths or IT skills
  • Identify local volunteering opportunities
  • Prepare effectively for interviews
  • Identify transferable skills & associated work
  • Apply for training & online learning
  • Plan realistic next steps & formulate an action plan

Thanks as always for your support and if you want to find out more about our workshops so we can run one for your customers online or face to face please contact me.
