Foyne Jones, the kbb recruitment company, is offering redundancy support for all of those dealing with the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis.
The company, which set up the initiative on hearing that Wren Kitchens cut 600 jobs, is to offer guidance in the form of a weekly webinar, as well as an industry support group.
The weekly webinars, hosted by MD Peter Jones, will each focus on improving different aspects of employability – CVs, social media presence and video.
Meanwhile, the support group will act as a space in which people can seek advice and share feelings with likeminded people. It has been set up in partnership with leading employers and brands, and will allow members to contact business leaders, career coaches and specialist recruiters.
Speaking about the initiative on LinkedIn, Jones said: ‘For many of us in the kbb and construction supplies sectors, the threat of redundancy has now become a terrifying reality.
‘I’m going to try and help everyone affected. We’re going to talk about showcasing your employability, showcasing yourself, engaging, inspiring, creating content which is going to get you noticed by employers. I’m going to help you review your CV and let you into some of the secrets of video – how you can present yourself in a way that everyone is learning about, and makes you stand out against any other job seeker.
‘It’s going to be tough for all of us. It’s tough for me and it’s tough for my business, it’s tough for you. We’ll do everything we can as a business to get you back on the ride and get you through this. Stay safe, keep healthy, be positive.’
