Talent Match Support
If you are a young adult from Lichfield, Cannock or Newcastle under Lyme then we are glad you have found us! Talent Match Staffordshire is a great project that works with 18-24 year olds who have been out of employment, training and education for over 12 months and supports them into getting work or starting their own business. Of course, even if you don’t meet the criteria above, you can still benefit with us by gaining experience in directing the project or volunteering as a mentor.
So what makes Talent Match Staffordshire different to all the other agencies? Well this project was designed by young people, it is led by young people and it is made for young people. That means YOU can get involved in this project no matter what your circumstances are or what your experience and everything we do is recommended by people just like you.
So how can you get involved?
Well first, if you have been out of work, education or training for over 12 months then you can access our free services. A local co-ordinator will arrange to have a friendly chat with you and get to know you a bit better…that way they can decide which of our brilliant Peer Mentors will be best suited to working with you.
You will then meet up with your dedicated Peer Mentor who is a volunteer that may have been through a similar experience as you. They are specially trained to tackle any barriers that are preventing you from reaching your goal and will give you that helping hand on your journey to employment.
Together with your Peer Mentor, you can choose from a range of opportunities that you think will help you prepare for work. That could be free training in things like interview techniques, writing CV’s, learning how to manage a budget… or maybe you would like to try work experience, or volunteering to fill that much needed space on your CV. Whatever your requirements, Talent Match Staffordshire is here to help you step by step along the way. So get in touch by visiting our [contact page] and we will be eager to support you on your road to success.
