The Action Station is set to start providing free job workshops focusing on applying for council jobs on Wednesdays with the first on January 20.

Action Station, Cole Street, Scunthorpe is a council run initiative aimed at providing skills, training and information on job opportunities for people in North Lincolnshire. Action Station, the one stop shop, signposts people to potential employers and provides the materials for them to update their qualifications and skills to get them further in their career.

The Action Station team will work with people age 16 and above, unemployed people, and those already employed looking to move on in their line of work, supporting them to improve their prospects of finding work, and track down the best training for their needs.

The job application workshops are specific to those wanting to work for the council. The workshops give prospective candidates the chance to look at what applying for a council job entails, how the process works, different job specifications and job descriptions and how to create a successful application.

Applications for North Lincolnshire Council should specify what skills, knowledge and experience the applicant has. To be shortlisted the applicant must meet the essential criteria being measured from the application form. Applicants must study the employee specification carefully.

The job application workshops are in place to support and give advice and information throughout the process of applying for a council job.

Cllr Rob Waltham, Cabinet member for Regeneration and Health and Strategic Projects, said: “The job application workshops are a fantastic idea. With the Action Station guiding applicants through the process it makes things a lot more stress free. They are a great group and can help if you are unemployed or are looking to make your qualifications more up-to-date. Staff at the station work hard to assess the individual’s needs and find the right opportunity for them.”

The job application workshop sessions will run from the Action Station on Cole Street, Scunthorpe, 1-3pm on:

Wednesday February 17

Wednesday March 23

The Action Station is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 4pm
