Working Wales advice service to help more people into work

A new streamlined service aimed at supporting people who are looking for work has been praised by Wrexham’s Assembly Member.

Lesley Griffiths AM has welcomed the latest Welsh Government initiative and hopes Working Wales will benefit people seeking employment opportunities in and around Wrexham.

Launched at the beginning of this month and delivered by Careers Wales, Working Wales’ introduction has heralded a more simplified approach to employability support.

The service offers anyone in Wales over the age of 16 access to personalised expert advice and training to help them find and maintain good, long-term employment.

Advice and guidance will be provided face-to-face at Careers Wales offices, local job centres or community hubs, as well as over the phone and online.

Lesley Griffiths AM said: “With all the challenges facing the Welsh economy at present, this new Welsh Government-funded service will make a positive difference by offering tailored advice and support for jobseekers, both in Wrexham and across the country.”

“Delivered by Careers Wales who have an office in Wrexham town centre, Working Wales will be able to provide individuals over 16 years of age access to a wide range of support, helping people with job searches, CV writing and interview preparation.”

“The streamlined, personalised approach will ensure young people and adults receive the right support, allowing them to overcome whatever obstacles they previously faced.”
