How to Find a Job in the North East
Finding a job anywhere can be a difficult, daunting and stressful experience, especially if you don’t have the first clue where to start. However, there are companies, schemes and centres that are designed specifically to help people find employment in their local area and beyond, and once you are aware of what they are and how they work, you will soon be much more confident about looking for a job. In this article, we are going to look at the various methods of employment help available for people in the North East.
Job centres are perhaps the most well-known method of trying to find gainful employment around the country. You can find them in most cities, and when you visit them, you can sit down with someone who will talk with you about your skills and options and use them to help you find a job that could be suitable for you. As well as offering job listings, they also offer advice and guidance – you may be totally unsure as to what you want to do, so talking with someone at a jobcentre could help give you some clarity and direction.
Recruitment agencies are found all over the world, and their primary focus is to find work for people who do not have it. You can sign up with a recruitment agency and then visit your recruiter, who will speak with you about the kind of work you would like, what skills you possess, whether you need training and what kind of availability you have. From here, they will then keep an eye out for any job openings that match or resemble your criteria. Companies regularly go to recruitment agencies to find new staff for temporary or permanent jobs, so this can be a very effective way of finding work.
Government Approved Training Centres
Training centres are excellent places to learn new skills and build on existing ones. Government approved centres, such as Health & Safety Training Ltd, offer a wide range of courses for people who are in receipt of JSA and ESA. The courses on offer are accredited by a variety of governing bodies and authorities, and completion of these courses will stand you in very good stead when applying for jobs in the future.
Careers guidance centres
These centres, such as Connexions, are particularly helpful for young people who are unsure where to start with their job hunting. Even if you are unsure what type of job you would like, talking to a careers guidance counsellor can help you discover what kind of jobs would be ideal for you. Once you have gained an idea of what kind of work you may be interested in, you can then consider one of the aforementioned methods: a recruitment agency, a job centre or a government approved training centre.
