INSPIRATIONAL people in Portsmouth are needed to help people across the city on their journey back into work.

The charity Careers Development Group (CDG), based in Guildhall Walk, is appealing to residents with experience to give their time to help people out of work with advice, mentoring and coaching.

The charity’s regional volunteering manager Sally Goodger said: ‘This is an exciting new project in Portsmouth which will give people the opportunity to use their skill and experience to give something back and support fellow locals who are out of work and want to get back on the employment ladder.

‘There are a wide variety of ways that people can help and we’re looking for people with a wide range of experience and expertise.

‘The rewards for jobseekers, volunteers and the town itself in getting people’s lives back on track will be considerable.’

CDG is looking for people who are enthusiastic about sharing their career experience and skills and who are keen to run industry specific group sessions for one-to-one coaching in areas ranging from HR and teaching to IT, catering and retail.
