Employment support for residents of South Tyneside

Friday, 23rd August 2019

Graeme Welsh, Employment Foundations Adviser

Karbon's Foundations for Life team are heading to South Tyneside

In partnership with Journey Enterprises, Karbon Homes is bringing its employment support service to the people of South Tyneside.

The event, taking place on Monday 2nd September at Christ Church Hall in Jarrow, is running in partnership with Journey Enterprises and will provide attendees with support on all things finding and getting a job.

This session will provide attendees with some of the key skills that employers look for, which will help put them above the competition.

The session will include;

  • Addressing the potential barriers to employment and how to overcome them
  • Creating a fit for purpose CV, drawing on the advice of experts
  • The interview dos and don’ts, covering common questions typically used in most job interviews.
  • Interview skills and techniques, practice answering interview questions in a role play situation
  • 1-2-1 advice on understanding how to pass a job interview.

On the completion of the session, Karbon’s Foundations for Life employment advisers will be on hand to chat about current job opportunities in the area, many of whom they have direct contact and strong relationships with.

For those who feel they would benefit from more support after the event, they can also make 1-2-1 appointments with our advisers for the future.

The session will run from 12pm - 3pm, and is free for those living in a Karbon household.

Places are limited for the event, so please call 0191 223 8750, or email foundations@karbonhomes.co.uk, to book your place.
