The People Hub is here for anyone in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly who needs advice and guidance to get back into employment or return to education or job training. We’ve identified 10 ways the People Hub can help kickstart your year for FREE in 2023.

1 – FREE support and advice with writing your CV and applying for jobs.

Your CV is the first thing an employer will look at and is your chance to stand out from the crowd, but writing a CV can be a really daunting task. Our Connectors will chat with you to identify your transferable skills and experience. They will then help you get all this information presented in a CV and support you to apply for jobs.

2 – We can connect you with our partner, SmartMatching Cornwall, a unique programme of tailored advice to help you with your job search.

SmartMatching is unlike any other job-coaching programme. It focuses on you: your skills, strengths and passions. Their incredibly supportive team will shift your mindset for your job possibilities, and help you to believe in yourself.

3 – Confidential and FREE help with retraining after redundancy.

Facing redundancy or being made redundant in Cornwall is hard, but help is close by. The dedicated People Hub team will work closely and confidentially with you on your next steps to help you back into employment. Whether it’s funding for training and qualifications or information on the opportunities available, our team is here for you.

If you are 16 or over, unemployed and looking to improve your digital skills then our Get Connected course is for you. The short sessions are for anyone who might be nervous using technology, particularly when searching for jobs.

9 – We can link you with support for housing, debt and mental health.

Whether you are struggling with money, work, health or housing, The People Hub is here to help. Our understanding team will give you FREE, confidential information and advice and link you with support for housing, debt and mental health.
