Bag yourself a job his holiday season!

It creeps up on us every year but Christmas is around the corner again.  With people needing to stay at home this holiday season, Southmead Development Trust’s employment and training team have been thinking about roles that will be as important as ever. Driving, delivery, warehousing, supermarkets and mail sorting are all likely to be advertising for work over the Christmas period very soon.

Out of work? Need a top up because of furlough? Want more financial security over Christmas?

Our employment and training team have a variety of options on offer to support you to get a holiday season job. Whatever your experience, everyone’s got skills to offer and we want to help you show that off!

Check out our Employment and Training Toolkit for tips, tricks and templates around job searching, CVs and applications. All the guidance is written by our experienced mentors. Everything can be downloaded to a phone, tablet or computer.
