Job Smart is a community-based project aimed at helping residents who are unemployed and require help to navigate the job seeking market. The project seeks to improve chances of getting back to work through access to CV writing, finding jobs online and interview skills. Further support includes digital routes to employment via learning opportunities and online videos. If you are a resident of either Broxbourne and East Herts you can seek help from our team of trained staff and volunteers, this may be by phone or online.
Our online support includes five free 30-minute bite size videos and associated support material.
