More help has been made available for people who are unemployed or economically inactive in Powys, Wrexham and Flintshire.
PRIME Cymru offers mature individuals bespoke, one-to-one support to find a job, set up in business or discover training and volunteering opportunities. PRIME People East will support those aged 25 and over to move closer to the world of work.
A dedicated team of Development Officers and volunteer mentors will focus on building clients’ confidence, improving IT skills, creating a great CV, refining interview techniques, and supporting them into work experience or further training. The project can also provide free work-related certificates, including First Aid, Health & Safety, Food Hygiene and Control of Substances Hazardous to Health.
