Finding a job, training course or work experience can be difficult, especially if you’ve been out of work for a while, you’re juggling work with looking after children or being a carer, or you’re new to the area.

That’s why our free back-to-work support service has been designed with the help of local people who know what it’s like to be in your shoes, in partnership with experts from Nottingham Trent University.

Whatever you need, you’re welcome to come to us for free, caring, positive one-to-one help and support, focused not just on ‘finding a job’, but on finding the job, training or work experience that’s right for you. From practical help to emotional support, we know ‘one size doesn’t fit all’, so please feel free to let us know what works for you.

This area is home to people with a hugely valuable range of skills, qualities and experiences. Our free back-to-work service is about helping you build on all the things you have to offer while showing businesses and organisations how they can benefit from local talent.

So why not come along and see us at one of our drop in sessions:

The Chase Neighbourhood Centre, Robin Hood Chase, St Ann’s, NG3 4EZ – Monday 9am to 4:30pm

St Ann’s Valley Centre, Livingstone Road, St Ann’s, NG3 3GG – Tuesday 9am to 1pm

We also offer one to one appointments from Wednesday to Friday, at a time, date and venue to suit your needs! You’re welcome to get in touch whether you’re job-hunting, looking for a change of career or thinking about volunteering. As well as drop in sessions and one-to-one support we also provide free internet access, IT help and a Resident’s Grant to help you pay for things like work clothes, equipment and travel costs.
