In work support
From day one of employment, we'll offer 6 months support to help you overcome any barriers you may find when starting in new employment.
This ranges from financial issues to getting the right clothing for the job. Support is offered either by email, phone or face to face and we encourage you to contact us regularly so we can ensure no problems are left for any length of time.
Working Wardrobe has been set up to tackle another barrier into employment that so many men and women face today. That barrier is the lack of suitable clothing to wear in order to make a good first impression at the interview.
Check out our Bolton at Work Facebook page
We started the Bolton at Work Facebook Page during the first lockdown in June 2020, in order to reach our customers digitally and offer our services virtually online. Since then, we've gained over 1,200 followers!
We promote our Bolton at Home customer training courses and our Employment Support Offer - such as Way In2 Work, Working Wardrobe and Barrier Busting services - in addition to external training provider courses, Bolton College courses and external Support Services available.
Each day we post multiple local jobs available and offer CV, application form and interview preparation support.
Customers can message the page directly to be referred to the correct person/team who can help with their specific need.
