It’s safe to say there is a lot going on at the moment and looking for a new job might not be top of your to do list right now. But what if you have been adversely affected by the economic downturn, are facing redundancy or just need to make ends meet and are wondering where to start?

Firstly, don’t be put off, there are jobs being advertised on a daily basis from businesses of all size and sector across the country and Wiltshire is no different.

A recent BBC article How do I find a new job during Covid and which sectors are hiring? gave some really useful advice and highlighted those sectors that are recruiting nationally and where training to support individuals that need to brush up on skills or enter a new sector were available.

It’s also important to keep your CV current so that you can instantly apply for jobs that meet your criteria. Considering how existing knowledge and experience can be transferred to various sectors is another good way to broaden the options open to you.
