    What you will get
    Dedicated employment advisers
    You will get help from one of our specialist employment advisers with:
    employability skills like time management and confidence
    writing your CV
    preparing for interviews.
    We will advise you on many aspects of applying for a job. But we won’t write a job application for you, talk to employers on your behalf, or find you work experience.
    12-week action plan
    Your employment adviser will work with you to create a confidential, personally tailored 12-week action plan. Your plan might include things like:
    reading job seekers' advice
    writing a CV or cover letter from a template
    research for an interview.
    We’ll keep your plan online, so you’ll need access to the internet.
    Your adviser will be on hand to help you throughout the 12 weeks. At the end of the 12 weeks your time with the adviser will be up, but you'll still have access to your plan and all its resources online.
