Access2Employment

The Access2Employment Team of professional employment advisers offer tailored support to help its clients secure new or better employment, training or educational opportunities.

The service works with its clients to better understand their employment aspirations and options, to develop skills to successfully identify and apply for vacancies and to perform well in interview.  We work in partnership with services within West Lothian Council and the local area, ensuring our clients are aware of and have access to the range of support available.

 
One to One service

Experienced advisers offer one to one support, working with clients to help them recognise the range of skills they have to offer potential employer's.  Building on this, advisers can then help develop an employment action plan, assist with job searching to identify suitable vacancies, with online applications and CV preparation in addition to mock interview practice.   The service is currently available online, however we are hopeful that in addition to this, the team will again be back to its community locations across West Lothian in the near future.

To arrange to speak to an advisor please  book an appointment online, Email: access2employment@westlothian.gov.uk or call the Freephone on 0800 032 9768.
