NLT Training Services, based in Brimington, provides Ukrainian refugees with access to their free Step into Employment service.
As well as providing immediate access to an employment specialist, who can provide hands-on support with CV writing and job applications, the training organization also offers free access to IT equipment.
A number of people have fled Ukraine to Chesterfield since the start of the war under the Homes for Ukraine programme. NLT is already helping people who have fled the war in Syria prepare for work, and now wants to extend this opportunity to Ukrainian refugees in and around Chesterfield.
Sarah Temperton, Managing Director of NLT Training Services, said: “NLT is not just a training provider, it is also a charity, so we are always looking for ways to support people in the local community. Like many people, NLT is keen to support Ukrainians who have arrived in Chesterfield, and we can offer both practical support and advice on finding employment through our popular Step into Employment programme.
“There are plenty of job opportunities right now, and even if people aren’t quite ready to start working, we can help them take their first steps towards preparing for employment. Working can be a great way to improve English, make friends and of course earn money to fund a more independent lifestyle.
“From CV writing to the application process, we have a great team here ready to welcome people and help them take their first steps into working in the UK.”
As part of the programme, which is delivered at NLT’s Station Road offices in Brimington, participants will have access to computer equipment, free internet access and advice on CV creation and interview techniques from employment expert Janice Parker. It is also possible to undertake work placements to enable participants to build their skills and confidence.
