Free Workshops for Workers Affected by Redundancy - commencing 16 February 2017  south

HR Development at Work is running Next Steps for Retrenched Workers in Southern Adelaide to help workers who have been retrenched. These free workshops supplement the normal outplacement programs offered by companies and are not meant to replace them. They provide some extra ongoing group support.
They’d love your help in ensuring every retrenched worker knows these are available to them.
If you know a worker whose position has been made redundant, invite them to these free support workshops on Thursdays in the Marion area. Workshops start 10:00 am and are repeated in the afternoon at 2:00pm, commencing Thursday 16 February. 
Workshops will be tailored to the needs and level of the participants. The workshops will help retrenched workers who want assistance with:

  • resumé and application writing
  • finding the hidden jobs
  • using technology to find and apply for jobs
  • interview skills training
  • finding a new career path, entering self-employment and more

Retrenched workers can find out more and register their interest to HR Development at Work by email
