Philipa SandtAs the Work Advisor at Rooftop I’ll support you with one-to-one job seeking skills. Together we look to what you want to achieve and design the support round you to help you find the job you are looking for.

Lots of Rooftop residents have been supported in different ways on their journey into paid work.

Most jobs today are found on-line, which is so convenient and easy if you know what you’re doing. If your IT skills aren’t that good I can help you to improve them, get you on-line and show you some of the best places to look on the internet

If you’re claiming Job Seekers Allowance you’ll know how important it is to make sure you prove to the Job Centre that you are actively looking for work. I encourage you to make sure you continually meet the requirements and can even suggest new job seeking activities you may not have even considered.

Approaching local employers yourself can be daunting, I can offer you practical tips on how to successfully contact possible employers yourself.

A good CV is really important in job searching, I can give you tips on how to write a CV so it gets you an interview and we’ll build up your confidence by working with you on interview techniques.

How often have you struggled to complete an application form? I‘ve helped many tenants complete applications without too much frustration.

Work does pay.  Once you’ve found the position you’ve worked hard to get I’ll continue to support you, make sure any other benefits you may be entitled to are claimed and prove that work pays.

You may not need all of the above support, the choice of what I help you with is yours. If you live in a Rooftop property and want this personal one-to-one support call me.

We have a Work Club at Broadway Library every Wednesday at 11.30 am.  This is an opportunity to meet other people in the same position to swop ideas and tips on job searching.
