A big part of being a great Community Jobs Scotland employer is the help and support you give to your employee. Our Moving on up! resources will give you hints and tips on how you can support and motivate your CJS employee so that they have the best chance of moving into a positive destination at the end of their contract.
The Moving on up! series will give you tips on how to help your employee:
- identify their strengths
- build a strong CV
- decide what type of job is right for them
- know where to look for job opportunities
- understand what training and learning opportunities are open to them
- prepare for interview situations
The resources will be published on a monthly basis for the next 6 months. Join the mailing list so you don’t miss out.
Blogs, hints & tips
Starting in February 2015, each month we’ll publish a new set of resources in this series. Gillian Anderson, Community Co-ordinator at CVO East Ayrshire, has over 10 years’ experience in managing hard to reach young people. She will share her hints and tips in a monthly blog.
