Welcome to Guildford Advice to Employment

Looking for a job or career change? Returning to work after a break? Are you aware of your marketable skills?

We can make it easier!

We are here to help you

We’ll help through the end to end journey of getting a job and to provide support once you are in that job if you need it.

Do you want to know what key skills employers want, how to get your CV to the top of the pile and how to better prepare yourself for an interview?

We are an independent, volunteer group providing practical advice and support to those seeking employment and volunteer positions. Many of our members have found paid employment and voluntary work as a result of our help.

Our adviser volunteers all have professional backgrounds and willingly share their wide-ranging employment knowledge and experience with you.

The gap-time that you may have can be used to good effect. We can help you reach your employment potential by focusing your CV and approach to the job market.

Our weekly meetings are informal and friendly with time set aside for individual advice and discussion.

We deliver employment orientated sessions which provide relevant information and practical materials, all shared informally over a tea or coffee.

Some words from our members

I have received help with my CV and one to one advice on my job search. Now my efforts are much more focused on what I want.
I felt very welcome, I now understand the philosophy of searching for a job in England and have come out successful.
I have very good news for you. I got the job offer in Farnborough. I can’t express how happy I am and would like to say thank you for helping with my CV and job hunting
I am now working at the Printed Motor Works in Alton. My dignity has returned and a clean break from the Job Centre. Thank you.
