Job Box Celebrates National Careers Week 2024

National careers week 2024

Welcome to National Careers Week 2024 (4 - 9 March) - a celebration of careers guidance in education.

This week provides a focus for careers guidance and supports young people as they leave education.

It also encourages people of all ages to explore different career pathways that match their interests.

Our Job Box service can help people of all ages with their career planning and support them with CV writing, job applications and communication skills.

The service also encourages people to explore volunteering, work experience and apprenticeships as well as Supported Internships which help young people with SEND (special educational needs and disability) gain valuable skills and practical experience which can lead to employment opportunities.

If you need support you can drop in to Job Box at Southwater One, Telford, Monday to Friday between 10am and 5pm, to speak to our team and access resources which can help you with your career journey.
