About this programme

We offer one to one support from a trained Key Worker, who will assess where you are in the job market, where would you like to be and help plan how we can help you get there.  Our Key Workers cover all areas of Aberdeenshire.

Everyone has skills, just not everybody realises this. The EST will help you find your potential by developing your personal plan with milestones to show your progress towards your employment goal.

Our Key Workers are skilled in pre-employment techniques to set you on the road to work readiness through building self-esteem and confidence. They will give practical help supporting you to create a professional CV and help you with interview techniques, communication skills and personal presentation. If you have no or poor digital skills we can offer practical guidance to improve this.

Other types of assistance we offer:

  • Delivering employability sessions and workshops
  • Providing information on learning/training and employment opportunities from partner agencies
  • Support finding affordable and flexible childcare and access to short-term financial help with childcare costs
  • Support in finding short-term financial assistance with items such as work clothing, travel and even groceries when you first start work
  • Advice about money and benefits

The Employability Service can support you to find:

  • paid employment
  • workplace experience
  • voluntary work
  • self employment
  • training

We can support you and the employer for as long as you need our service.

We can provide practical support in helping you find employment. Typical support may include:

  • career guidance – looking at your skills and strengths, and finding out about the areas of work that interest you
  • job search – we can contact employers on your behalf, identifying suitable vacancies and setting up job opportunities
  • help with writing a CV – if you need your CV updated we can provide practical advice on how to get your CV noticed
  • interview practice – you may not have had an interview for some time, or you want to improve your interview skills, we can help improve your interview performance

Here's something you should know

Info Box

Employability programmes work a little differently from other courses, especially when it comes to eligibility. For example, someone from Glasgow wouldn't be eligible for a programme taking place in North Ayrshire, and vice versa. Check the Postcode Eligibility tab in the Things to Know section to make sure this programme is open to you.
