Support for residents faced with unemployment

Telford & Wrekin Council are reaching out to residents who may find themselves in difficult circumstances and faced with unemployment due to COVID-19.

Job Box is a free service from Telford & Wrekin Council, which supports residents of all ages to find work. It aims to connect local people looking for work with businesses who are recruiting.

Job Box can help people of all ages at any stage of their lives. From CV support, practicing interview skills, re-building your confidence, understanding your skill set or getting access to funding for learning and courses to gain new skills.

A new service Job Match has also been launched to match job-hunting workers with vacancies across the borough.

Telford Job Match will also work directly with businesses connecting them to other businesses who may be losing staff as well as finding new recruits, connecting residents with job and training opportunities and also signposting help and support for companies and staff dealing with redundancy as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Residents looking for support in finding a new job should visit the Job Box website for more information.
