Your situation may fit into these criteria, but don’t worry if it doesn’t. It’s very likely we can still help, and would encourage you to contact Work & Skills Leicestershire.

What we can help you with

Our qualified personal advisers offer an impartial and professional advice service to support you on a one-to-one basis. 

We’ll get to know you and your ambitions and put together a tailored work plan, with clear targets and steps to help you reach them. We can also help you to develop a 12-week plan to help you start your journey to training or employment. 

We can help with things like:

  • CV writing skills
  • cover letter writing skills
  • job search
  • learning, training or volunteering opportunities
  • interview techniques
  • digital training

We can also work directly with employers who may be in the unfortunate position of making redundancies and want to support their staff to find new employment.
