What we Do
We provide Going Places pre-employment programmes around goal setting, CVs and cover letters, interview training and money matters. Our post employment programmes are around leadership, workplace etiquette, social media, work life balance and career management. We also provide a styling and dressing service. This ensures clients look their best when they attend an interview for a job or to assist those in training or work experience when they do not have work appropriate attire to wear. Once the client finds permanent employment they may return for a capsule work wardrobe to assist them in the first few weeks of work. All our clients are referred from our registered referral agencies and are free to our clients.
