Free workshops for Redundant Retailers from ReWork


Free workshops to help people who have been made redundant from retail are being offered by Retail Trust, the only charity that looks after the needs of all three million people working in retail, through the ReWork programme. Professional trainers and coaches will lead the half-day workshops in central London, and will focus on different aspects of redundancy and job hunting. Many previous attendees attribute their success in finding a new job to the skills they learned through the ReWork programme (worth over £1,000). In addition to the workshops, ReWork offers a free downloadable Guide to Resolving Redundancy on the retail trust website, as well as free career coaching and links to retailers who are currently recruiting.
