Help for Hackney’s Older Unemployed
Wise Age’s Hackney Support Programme for over 50s, whether they are receiving benefits or not, is going to continue after a successful first year of helping older people back into work.
Chris Walsh – Chief Executive of Wise Age – the voluntary specialist age and employment experts- said ‘We are looking forward to launch a new set of weekly group and individual training and support sessions for the over 50s every Wednesday at 11 am starting 7th February. These support sessions will last until the end of March and are open to anyone who wants to find employment or self-employment, not just those on JSA or Universal Credit. We warmly welcome new participants for what may be the last of these group training courses’.
The topics this programme will cover include confidence building and motivation, understanding and overcoming ageism in employment, job search, job matching, volunteering opportunities, effective CV writing and job application writing, interview techniques and mock interviews.
Peter Murphy – Head of Wise Age Programmes added ‘As the leading age employment specialists Wise Age experienced and professional advisers listen to you, respect your reality, and encourage you to make positive steps forward.
These training sessions will be held every Wednesday from 11 am at Chats Palace, 42- 44 Brooksby’s Walk, Hackney, E9 6DF.
