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 two 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 in Chichester at the District Council and details of these workshops are listed below. Workshops are free to all Chichester District residents and we look forward to welcoming you. Tea and coffee is provided! Come along on the day or get in touch to find out more and book your place; choosework@chichester.gov.uk.
