Unemployment and redundancy support

How we can support your employees, if they face redundancy or furlough

We can work with you or directly with your employees and offer:

  • online job searching: assisting people to set up and use online accounts including email and Universal Job Match
  • application forms: advising people on how to write an effective personal statement
  • online interview techniques: improving interview techniques through mock interviews, improving body language or practicing questions
  • overcoming barriers: helping the customer to assess what is stopping them meeting their goals e.g. lack of experience, low levels of maths or English etc.
  • signposting and referral: referring on to other agencies where appropriate or courses that can help people into employment
  • career progression: explore career progression and internal vacancies in current role; helping people identify their skillsets
  • recruitment support: pre-selection activities and employability skills


We can run workshops covering any of the above activities across Bedfordshire. Workshops can be tailored to meet the needs of your business and staff.
