Tuesday 30th June a.k.a #LancashireIsOpen
This day has been earmarked as the day that the job market reopens in Lancashire and with a new surge of recruits expected to walk through job center doors, online job search and carry around their CV's, it is important for everyone involved in these processes and life changes to look after their wellbeing.
A lot of us have experienced major change since lockdown began, whether that be working from home, going on furlough, being declared a frontline worker or even losing your job or business.
Support with Working from Home, Furlough and Redundancy
Holly, our Community Development Lead put together a pack to help support Lancashire during Lockdown, specifically with changes and impact caused by working from home, furlough and redundancy.

Looking for work? We have a service for that...
Along with hopes of a fruitful new job venture also comes the possibility of rejection. And with higher numbers of people expected to begin their job search, some roles will find themselves inundated with applications.
Emotions such as stress and worry as well as thoughts of self-doubt can show up during these transitions in life and so it is vital to be in a good space mentally before approaching the task at hand.
We truly believe that focus on increasing your mental wellbeing as a priority will benefit:
- your overall ability to focus on job applications and being able to come across more positive about yourself and your skills
- your overall attitude when in interviews and how you project your strengths and enthusiasm
- your resilience should things not go as planned
Did you know we have two amazing Transformational Coaches, called Julie and Antony, who specifically work with people wanting to find work?
