A successful first-of-its-kind insight session to help job seekers discover potential new career paths and make best use of their transferrable skills was held last month.

Hull and East Yorkshire Business Growth and Skills Hub (HEY BGSH) partnered with Navigating Health and Care’s Inclusion Project to deliver the event at Job Centre Plus in Beverley.

The session was regarded as a resounding success, with attendees receiving a range of information related to careers within the health and care sector and how these can be accessed.

Additionally, individuals were offered the opportunity to access a National Careers Service workshop aimed at supporting them to navigate the journeys into new and rewarding careers paths.

The well-attended session was aimed at those who had recently become unemployed and were looking to maximise their transferrable skills.

Teresa Chalmers, chief operating officer at HEY BGSH, said: “This session proved a success and we were pleased to be able to team up with Job Centre Plus and Navigating Health and Care’s Inclusion Project.

“The BGSH is all about helping people and businesses to grow and to maximise their potential and last month’s event certainly did that.”

A spokesperson for Job Centre Plus said: “Customers found the session extremely valuable in helping them understand the numerous career paths available within the NHS and care sector.

“It gave them an insight into the recruitment process and, in conjunction with the National Careers Service support session, enabled them to more confidently apply for vacancies.”
