NLT launches free walk-in advice service to support unemployed people in Derbyshire

Walk-in service will help unemployed people get work ready ahead of lockdown lifting

 

A brand-new initiative has been launched by Chesterfield-based training provider and registered charity NLT Training Services to help get people work ready ahead of lockdown being lifted.

A free walk-in job support centre at NLT’s Brimington offices on Station Road, is offering use of IT equipment, free internet access, advice, training and guidance to anyone currently unemployed. It aims to boost confidence and enable people who are facing unemployment to create their own personal roadmap back to the workplace.

The service is available to use now. To ensure Covid social distancing guidelines are

adhered to, people are asked to simply call ahead and make an appointment to access the service.

The walk-in job support centre builds on NLT Training Services’ successful Step into

Employment 12-week programme which it launched last year following funding from the Community Funds Grant.

Employment specialist Janice Parker, who ran Step into Employment, will be running the new walk-in job support centre. She will be on hand to support people looking to get back into the workplace. Janice can advise on CV creation, interview techniques and even

arrange work experience to help people regain confidence.

Sarah Temperton, Chief Executive of NLT Training Services explained:

“With the prospect of lockdown ending soon, there has never been a more important time than now to ensure that people feel ready and confident to work. Our walk-in service offers full support to people who may otherwise feel daunted and vulnerable at the prospect of searching for employment

during this unprecedented time. Our friendly team offer invaluable support and expertise on all areas of employment. With the service offered as a walk-in rather than run as a course, NLT will be able to focus on the more individual needs of people.”

NLT Training Services, based in Chesterfield, has been delivering workplace training to

individuals and companies since 1968 and is registered as a charity.

If you would like to book an appointment, please get in touch with Janice Parker on 07947 550 571 or email janice.parker@nlt-training.co.uk
