So, are you thinking about doing something different?

With the government’s Job Retention Scheme (‘furlough’) coming to an end at the end of September 2021, employers across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent may need to make staffing changes.  Is now the time for you to make a career change, even if you’re not ‘at risk.   Maybe you’re ready for a change?

Despite many businesses struggling, the pandemic has brought about huge growth in sectors across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, such as digital and creative technologies, health and social care, the green economy, construction and transportation, manufacturing and logistics, and there are thousands of opportunities.

You don’t have to wait to be at risk or redundant to start exploring your options.

‘’But exactly what have I got to offer?’’ you might be asking!   What are your transferable skills?  Do you have the qualifications?  Will you have to start from scratch at a lower paid job?  Is now the time to do something you’ve always wanted to do? It’s time to start a conversation to get the answers to all the questions you have? You don’t have to wait until you’re at risk or made redundant to take control of your future. Qualified National Careers Service advisers supporting the new Triage Service can provide one to one support to help you plan your next steps, help you to improve your skills and put the pieces together, including:

  • Understanding your transferable skills, key strengths and careers options
  • Skills analysis and career planning
  • CV development
  • Understanding the local job market
  • Current vacancies relevant to your skills and experience
  • Interview techniques
  • Searching for courses and training schemes

The service is free, so what have you got to lose?  

Start an online conversation with an advisor at the National Careers Service to explore getting into a better local job or call 0800 100 900 to start putting the pieces together and take control of your future
