The Still Ready for Work programme in Scotland supports workers aged 50+ to remain in or return to work, helping them to have enough income, stay connected and enjoy a fuller working life.
We run FREE online Still Ready for Work workshops for people in Scotland aged 50+ that assist individuals with: assessment of skills; digital job searches; social media presence; CV creation; interview techniques and more.
All sessions will support attendees to refresh and update their current knowledge and skills and enable them to respond to vacancies or make career choices more effectively.
Looking for a job can be a lonely business. People aged 50+ who are facing redundancy, currently unemployed or looking at a new career are invited to join this informal, drop-in style online group where they can share experiences, learn from others and get tips, advice and support from friendly BITC staff and others in the same boat. The Club helps people seeking work to stay encouraged and confident to help them achieve their job goals.
Coffee & Job Club meetings take place every Wednesday 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM and you’re welcome to stay for the duration, or drop in when suits
