Called Career Boost, the webpage provides practical information and introduces users to a range of organisations that offer career and job support services to help develop new and existing skills.

The website is designed to help unemployed people find work or start a business, as well as helping employed people that are wanting a change in career in order to add to their skillset.

On the website residents will find five unique sections, each tailored to easily point people towards the right information that will help you achieve your goals, and a list of the Partners Organisations which include the University of Nottingham, Vision West Notts College, Care4Notts, Department for Work and Pensions, Futures, and The Construction Industry Training Board.

"We want to give the people of Ashfield the means to access support and opportunities that can be life changing.
