Choose Work is here to help you move forward in your life and move into or towards employment.

Through coaching, mentoring, providing information, advice and guidance, we work with Chichester District residents to help them identify where they want to get to, and work out an action plan to help them get there.

Our 3 Choose Work Coordinators will work with you using a variety of one to one mentoring, workshops and events to help you feel more positive about your future, break down the barriers that might be stopping you from moving forward and help you to identify the next steps for you.

Are you:

  • Unemployed or looking to change your job?
  • Looking for a different perspective?
  • Feeling stuck in where your life is?
  • Hoping to find a way forward?
  • Dreaming of a better future?
  • Wanting to get involved but not sure how?
  • Lacking in confidence or self-esteem?

Then Choose Work helps you find what's right for you. We work with you to help you identify your dreams, your drive and your skills and help you find your place in work and in life.

Mentoring and coaching

We offer one to one sessions which start with an initial assessment. At this appointment we help you to identify goals to work towards and then work with you regularly as you develop more confidence and move forward towards work.


These take place every month in Chichester and are a chance to meet other job seekers, share experiences, look at your personal development and develop new job related skills.


We run a programme of events throughout the District and you are welcome to join us for any of them. All our upcoming events will be listed.

 If you are involved in a community group we are also happy to come and run an employment-linked event especially for you so please get in touch.
