Support and advice to help residents achieve their personal and professional goals will be available in a number of North Somerset libraries from Monday 17 May.

Opportunity North Somerset is launching employment and skills hubs at Clevedon, the For All Healthy Living Centre, Pill, Weston and Yatton libraries where residents will be able to get impartial advice about which options will best suit their needs.

These hubs will be open Monday to Friday with local providers on hand to offer guidance in the following areas:

  • careers and job support
  • youth wellbeing and employment support
  • digital inclusion support
  • business start-up support
  • wellbeing support.  

Residents can book dedicated sessions to get tailored advice and find out more about the guidance available on employment and training.

"If you're thinking about what your next steps should be, Opportunity North Somerset is a great place to start your new journey," said Cllr Catherine Gibbons, North Somerset Council's executive member for children's services and lifelong learning.

"The employment and skills hubs will offer a great opportunity for jobseekers and residents to get expert help to develop new skills, access support sessions and outline a pathway to employment."
