Yorkshire Employability Programme

​Announcing our arrival in North Yorkshire

Our new Employability Project embraces theResumeWay– a pathway that supports others to prepare for, find and retain meaningful and inclusive employment through one of Bridge of Hope's key partners, Resume Foundation. We aim to provide an even footing for those who often are overlooked or ignored due to being, or feeling, marginalised, and we define marginalised as anyone who is discriminated against due to their circumstance or characteristics. This includes those in rural communities, ex-offenders, over 50s, women returning to work, LGBTQ+ and those with additional mental health needs.

The project offers each candidate a series of workshops (delivered online while face-to-face meetings are prevented) and additional one-to-one support. These focus on CV writing, job searching, application forms and interview preparation, together with any specific needs identified by the individuals.

To qualify for this support, you must be over 18, unemployed, living in North Yorkshire and have a legal right to work in the UK.
