The COVID pandemic has unfortunately meant that a lot of people have been on furlough, are struggling to find a job or are facing redundancy as many businesses are forced to cut jobs. Many people don’t know what support they can turn to when job hunting.
According to the BBC, millions of people in the UK are at risk of redundancy as the end of the furlough scheme nears. It is a stressful time and you can sometimes be left feeling overwhelmed with your job search, with many people asking questions like “how many pages should a CV be?”, “What needs to be on my CV?”, “how do I stand out during COVID?” and lots more.
We want to help you.
As part of their Covid campaign, we’ve partnered with sistr, a mentoring platform which helps women to connect and support each other, to bring you a free webinar on CV, job hunting and interview tips. Join us on Tuesday 3 November at 11am (GMT) as Salt consultants Lizzie Harding, Lauren James and Jade Watson share their tips, advice and what not to do – to help increase your employability and land a new job.
