Looking for a job can be a very daunting prospect, especially if you’ve only just finished school and have little or no work experience to put on your CV. We’re here to help with some useful careers information to get you started, from details of the biggest sectors and employers in your local area to tips for writing CVs and succeeding at interviews.
Employers spend an average of 30 seconds scanning a CV or covering letter so it's important that yours is well structured, easy to read and full of reasons to interview you!
Interviews can be a very nerve racking experience, especially if it's your first time. All employers carry out interviews in different ways, but you can prepare yourself for most scenarios and, when it comes to successful interviews, preparation is key.
One of our objectives is to increase knowledge of the local labour market and we use a variety of data tools to provide crucial insights into different occupations and the jobs and skills that are most in demand.
There are many online resources out there to help you with your job search.
We've selected some of the ones that we think are the most useful.
There are some large global companies in the areas that we cover - Peterborough, Rutland, Fenland, King's Lynn and West Norfolk - as well as some very innovative small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
