The Belfast Works Employability Programme offers a tailored service which meets your needs whatever your situation. If you are unemployed or working less than 16 hours per week we can give you the help and support you need to get back into sustainable employment. Once you are signed up to the programme you will be assigned a dedicated mentor who will help you to take the next steps in developing your career or getting a job. We can help to fine tune your CV and give you the skills required to fill in application forms and prepare you for interviews. We work with many employers in your local area who are looking for people just like you. Because we have strong relationships with these employers we have exclusive access to jobs that you won’t see advertised anywhere else which gives you a better chance of being successful at interview as we know exactly the skills they are looking for.
As a result of Covid-19 our top priority is ensuring that our clients are kept as safe as possible by conducting all of our meetings remotely over the telephone (or through online platforms such as Zoom). We are even running free accredited training courses over the internet to ensure that you are fully prepared once you get that new job. Our offices might be closed at the moment but we are still open for business so give us a call or send us a message on the Belfast Works Facebook page and take the first step to changing your life.
Parallel Support Service
The Belfast Works Parallel Support Service is a bespoke programme for anyone who wants to get back to work but perhaps doesn’t feel quite ready at the moment for one reason or another. We have a dedicated team who will work with you to try to break down any barriers you feel are preventing you from entering the world of work. Some of these barriers could be any anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or anything which is making it more difficult for you to realise your potential. Whatever it is we have a programme that is just right for you based on your preferences. We are totally client centred meaning that we will involve you in the whole process and always go at a pace that is just right for you to ensure that you get the most out of this experience. Our Parallel Support Mentors have a wealth of experience in helping people just like you realise your dreams. There has never been a better time to make a positive change. Covid-19 means that our offices are closed but the level of service stays the same. For your safety all meetings are being done remotely so that means either over the telephone or using video conferencing software (Zoom) which is proving to be very popular with both our new and existing clients. Once you sign up we can even arrange fully accredited training courses that you can complete from the comfort of your own home to enable you to reach your maximum potential and change your life for the better. For more information please give us a call or register your interest on the Belfast Works Facebook page and we will be in touch to let you know what the next steps are. What have you got to lose?
