New employment and skills advice for parents in Essex

Posted on: February 10, 2022

Targeted and personalised employment support is being offered to parents in Essex. Thanks to the Essex Opportunities Portal, parents can now book an appointment with a qualified Employment and Skills Advisor. The advisor will provide online, telephone and outreach support. They will discuss individuals’ employment goals and aspirations and have in-depth knowledge of jobs opportunities, careers advice and skills and training. The advisor can also help with things like interview preparations and presentation of CVs.
Funded by Essex County Council and Southend Borough Council, the Essex Opportunities Portal is a one stop shop for information and advice on jobs, careers, skills and training. If you would like to speak with an adviser for information, advice and guidance please call 03330 320509 or email [email protected]
Cllr Louise McKinlay, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Community, Equality, Partnership and Performance of Essex County Council, said: “I am delighted that the new Employment and Skills Advisor is now in post and ready to offer help to parents, identifying new ways to develop their skills or approach a new job, while reflecting on their existing individual family needs and commitments. “This fully supports the delivery of our Everyone’s Essex strategy and is another positive step in our aims to level up the County and widen opportunities and support to our working families, so that more people in Essex can fulfil their potential.”
