Jobseeking

All libraries have access to the internet where jobseekers can search, and apply for jobs. There are free online resources to help with writing  CVs, and many libraries have friendly IT buddy volunteers who can offer a 1:1 service in helping to find and apply for work. They can signpost to high quality information and specialist organisations too, including Job Clubs in some libraries where trained staff are on hand to help.

The service is a great starting point for entrepreneurs who want to start their own business and small enterprises looking to expand. Help is available to direct them to relevant sources of information or specialist organisations, and meeting rooms in many libraries offer an affordable, practical space for meetings or interviews. Finally there are touchdown centres in several; libraries to enables county councils staff to work remotely. 

With all of these services, plus free wifi now available at all libraries, wifi printing at 12 sites, IT training, free eBooks on personal development and employability, and space to work, Staffordshire libraries are playing an important role in boosting the help available to local people looking for work.
