Supporting You

Job Box is a Telford & Wrekin Council initiative supporting residents of all ages to find work.

It could be your first job, a new opportunity to develop your career or if you are returning to the job market perhaps after redundancy.

Whether that’s assistance finding a new job, interview support or developing your skills – our Job Box team can help. The first step is to get in touch.

Here are some of the ways Job Box can support you. We understand everyone’s circumstances are different so we’d always recommend getting in touch to discuss your personal situation.

Support finding a Job

A Job Box Advisor can support you in finding a new job. From advice and guidance during your job search to updating your CV and helping you prepare for an interview.

Many jobs now require you to apply online. Job Box can help if you haven’t got IT or internet access or if you need support setting up an email account.

Specialist advisors are also on hand if you have Learning Difficulties and Disabilities.

We can link you to companies who are recruiting now through Job Box Job Match.

Discover your skills

Can’t find the job you are looking for? Our Job Advisors can help you widen you jobs search by discovering new skills - whatever stage you are at in your working life.

Courses and learning

Maybe you have found a job you’d like to apply for but you need some training.

Job Box can also provide you with new courses and learning opportunities from building confidence, improving English and Math’s and gaining new skills and knowledge. View available courses at Learn Telford.

We work with other our local partners providing training opportunities including Telford College and Telford Job Centre and will look to facilitate retraining opportunities where we have a high demand of vacancies by a specific business or sector.
