Job Box supports local business during pandemic

Job Box has already provided a support to a number of businesses who have been affected by the coronavirus. Here’s what one organisation said about the support they received.

“The Job Box team have run a number of virtual workshops, via Microsoft Teams, for our at risk employees to support them with CV writing and interview skills preparation. They even tailored the training to include hints and tips on preparing for a virtual interview, given the ongoing pandemic restrictions. This support was very much appreciated by our employees who participated in the sessions and by our management team. I would definitely recommend other employers to speak to the team about support they can offer during challenging times.”

If your organisation has currently been affected by the coronavirus pandemic, Job Box can offer a range of support right now.

This includes 1-2-1 advice and group sessions to assist employees who are currently at risk of redundancy. Job Box can help get employees access to vital training courses, give advice on updating CV’s and preparing for job interviews as well as connecting people who are looking for work with local job opportunities.

Lewis

After completing his level 3 BTEC in business and accounting Lewis and was keen to find a new career in accounting where he could put to use what he had learnt at college.

Lewis, aged 19 and from Telford, contacted Job Box as he needed help putting together his first CV. A 1-2-1 appointment was arranged and Lewis was introduced to a Job Box careers advisor who went on to support him with his job search.

After Lewis explained what type of job he was looking for he was shown how to put together a CV and why it was so important to have a strong opening profile to promote his qualifications and personal objectives. Lewis was asked to talk about and give examples of his skills which proved a really useful exercise as it improved his confidence highlighting that you can advertise much more than just your work history and qualifications on your CV.

Next they looked through different job profiles to see what skills Lewis could match and include on his CV. Once Lewis’s CV was complete he was then advised on which types of jobs to apply for and practiced his interview skills.

Lewis was successful in applying for the account apprenticeship role with local company Tardis and once complete hopes to continue his career as a full time accounting technician.

Well done Lewis!
