Vestia Community Trust is our Group partner, which offers people in our homes and neighbourhoods above the age of 16 a wide range of employment support services.
Vestia Job Coaches give people the enthusiasm, motivation and confidence to enhance their life, with a job, no matter what the situation. We offer a package of one to one services including:
- Support in CV writing
- Interview skills
- Life skills and career counselling
- Work experience placements
- The marketing of your skills to local employers
- Post - employment support when you start work
There is also an opportunity to improve employment skills by attending a City and Guilds Certificate in Employability Skills. The programme is delivered over nine days during a two week period and followed by work experience where appropriate. During the programme you will create/update your C.V. and complete online applications to specific employment opportunities.
Throughout the programme you are also encouraged to develop problem solving and team work skills and undertake a group project. There is also the opportunity to participate in 'mock' interviews where you can practice and develop interview skills.
Following completion of the course, you will continue to receive information, support and guidance from a Vestia Jobs Coach.
Employment Services are delivered in partnership with our partners The Community Housing Group, Wyre Forest District Council and Heart of Worcestershire College.
