New website to help Ashfield residents find jobs and training launched by council
Called Career Boost, the webpage provides practical information and introduces users to a range of organizations that offer career and employment support services to help develop new and existing skills.
The website is designed to help unemployed people find work or start a business, as well as employed people who want to change careers in order to increase their skills.
On the website, residents will find five unique sections, each designed to easily direct people to the right information that will help you achieve your goals, and a list of partner organizations which include the University of Nottingham, Vision West Notts College, Care4Notts, Department for Work and Pensions, Futures and The Construction Industry Training Board.
Councilor Sarah Madigan (Ash Ind), Executive Member responsible for Client Services and Strategic Planning, said: “The new Career Boost Portal is a one-stop-shop for developing new skills and opportunities and connecting people with local organizations.
“We want to empower the people of Ashfield to access support and opportunities that can change their lives.
“Not everyone knows what is available or where to go for help and information.
“Our hope is that this becomes the next step for people on their journey.”
