Following a successful launch of phase 2 of our Hackney Support Programme for over 50s who are looking for work on 22nd November Wise age is now running weekly group training and support sessions every Wednesday at 11 am starting 29th November. These support sessions will last until 20th December and are open to anyone who wants to find employment or self employment, not just those on JSA or Universal Credit.
The topics we are covering include jobsearch, volunteering opportunities, effective CV writing and job application writing, interview techniques etc. We listen to you, respect your reality, and encourage you to make positive steps forward.
We also offer 1-2-1 support to help with specific job applications and prepare for actual interviews.
We are also happy to help people find volunteering opportunities and are pleased to be working with Alex from St. Joseph's Hospice where they have over 500 volunteers and are very supportive volunteer support programme, with vacancies in a wide variety of roles.
