Help finding work
As the safety and welfare of our residents is our number one priority and following the recent UK government advice to practice social distancing the Job Shop have made the decision to temporarily close all our locations from Monday 23rd March 2020.
We will be offering our service remotely to our existing clients and those that would like to sign up for support. As the shops are closed we will not be holding any face-to-face appointments and therefore only supporting residents over email, telephone calls and skype. If you are interested in registering with our service please complete the online form below and you will be contacted by one of our staff members with the next steps. Alternatively please call our reception for further support or you can be referred to our service by another service provider within the council.
Our teams will be working hard to continue to support residents during this time and look at new and better ways to work with our residents. We will be updating our website regularly with any news and keep residents informed about any changes to the service.
Thank you and stay safe.
