Help getting into work

Struggling to find a job

Positive Steps into Work is a FREE council service to help get unemployed people back into work.

It's all part of our commitment to regenerating Blackpool and making it a better place to live, work and do business.

Whether that's help to find a training course or work placement, writing a CV or helping with job applications, tips on handling job interviews or paying for interview clothes or work equipment when you get a job. 

We can do it all!
