THE deputy leader of South Tyneside Council has urged jobseekers to seek help at the town’s central library next week.

South Tyneside Libraries Service, in association with the National Careers Service, is offering people the chance to improve their job-searching skills.

The library in Prince Georg Square, South Shields, will be hosting two free practical workshops, on Tuesday and on Monday, January 27, between 1pm and 4pm.

People will be given the chance to write and update their curriculum vitae (CV) and learn more about how to make the most of online job searching.

Coun Alan Kerr, the council’s deputy leader and lead member for culture and leisure, said: “These workshops are a great idea, as they give people a chance to set out their stall and help realise their true potential.

“Sometimes individuals need the right advice or to be provided with the added confidence to achieve their goals.

“The council works in partnership with a number of schools, colleges, businesses and charity organisations to come up with rewarding and beneficial ways for people to gain employment, or to find appropriate training that will allow them to pursue key career opportunities.”

People interested in taking part can call 424 7864 or e-mail library.support@southtyneside.gov.uk
