The Christmas period can be a daunting time for many; days are shorter and cold, money is tighter than usual and the image of family and friends sat around a Turkey laughing can be far from reality.
But with the closing of what may have been a difficult year, comes the opportunity to start afresh in January. Now is the time to reflect on what you want to change about your circumstances and focus on the positives that could come from moving forward.
New Years resolutions are a great way to set goals for the year ahead and to ultimately improve your overall wellbeing. These may include, getting fit and healthy, making more time for friends and family, involving yourself in your local community or finding a job!
At Work Well we know that January and February are the ideal months to look for work for a number of reasons. That’s why we encourage people eligible to join the project do so now so that you can get ahead of the game. Our experienced Career Coaches offer free, regular, one-to-one sessions to help you find the right job for you.
Whether you’re ready to start job-searching now or you need a little time to get to that stage, your Career Coach can help you to create an eye-catching CV, brush up on your interview techniques and find voluntary work and training courses to help qualify you for your ideal job. In addition to this our Financial Adviser can support you with your benefits entitlement, debt management, childcare and housing issues and help you to get your finances back on track.
Work Well tries to take the unnecessary stress out of finding paid work and we are here to help you find a ‘new you’ in 2019.
