Access 2 Work
Rutland Library Service have a suite of PCs and other equipment to help Rutland residents’ access job information.
Housed in Oakham Library, the PCs act as important information points to those who are unemployed, featuring desk-top links for jobs searches, volunteering opportunities, and employment advice services.
Rutland Adult Learning offer a Work Club with additional free advice, guidance and training sessions in the Access2Work hub from 1pm-4pm every week on Wednesdays.
In addition to these advice sessions, Oakham Library runs self-service Job Search sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays. Free printing is being offered for job seekers on Mondays and Wednesdays. The service has helped many people access job websites and the services that they need in order to get employment within the county.
Please note: There will be no session half-term Wednesday 3rd April and Wednesday 10th April.
As part of the project an Information, Advice and Guidance worker from our partner organisation PJT Employability, is available one day a month (The First Wednesday of the month – 9am–12noon and 1pm-4pm) to offer advice and support to those seeking work including National Careers Service appointments. The sessions are drop-in sessions, and additional one to one appointments are also available. Sessions are FREE to attend. Job seekers are able to receive help with CVs, application forms, interview techniques, job searching & courses.
Anyone interested in job search help who is either unemployed or is in an "at risk" post can just drop-in. For further details about the PJT advice sessions please contact PJT Employability on 01536 402 991 or contact Rutland Adult Learning on 01572 772599
