Are you a parent or carer in Greater Manchester, looking to return to paid work? Are you looking for support to find flexible jobs with family friendly or carer friendly employers?
Caring, Working, Living is a Greater Manchester project that supports people with caring responsibilities who are looking to return to paid employment (Returners) to increase their confidence and self-esteem in relation to returning to paid employment, and to improve their understanding of the skills that employers are looking for.
Returners are people who have taken at least a year out of work to undertake caring responsibilities for children, or elderly or sick relatives.
Caring, Working Living can:
- Provide information to ‘Returners’ about agencies in their local area that provide support with job search skills.
- Provide financial support towards the cost of job searching, for example towards the cost of childcare or other care; travel to an employment support activity; interview costs such as travel or clothing.
- Provide information about employers that are offering coffee and chats; workplace visits; work trials; placements or Returnships as part of their recruitment.
If you have any questions about the project, please contact Vicky for more information.
