Community skills

Everyone's journey is unique.

Our Community Skills team offer free information, advice, and guidance to all Victory tenants who wish to improve their skills and opportunities. When it comes to careers, sometimes there are opportunities ready for us to seize but sometimes there are setbacks and things don't go as planned.

We’re here to help you navigate the changing landscape of work, volunteering and training. Email us or use the contact form at the bottom of the page to get in touch!

Join us on Facebook!

Our Facebook group is exclusively for Victory tenants. Engage with like-minded people experiencing a similar journey and help us shape the service we offer. We share top tips on topics like CV writing and creating a positive mindset, as well as signposting you to learning opportunities and much more!

We can help you

Reach your potential

We'll work with you to increase your confidence, focus on your goals, build relationships and identify your skills to help you create a positive mindset and believe in yourself!

Find volunteering opportunities

If you're thinking about work but you're not quite ready, volunteering or a supportive work placement can be a brilliant place to start. It offers you a routine, social contact, sense of purpose, all while developing your skills and contributing to your community.

Boost your digital skills

Whether you need to learn the basics as a complete beginner or want to develop existing skills, we can help you get where you want to be! We can help you get online and access devices too.

Investigate employment

Build effective and relevant job searches, gain deeper insight into interview techniques and learn what makes a great CV. If you're out of work, we'll assist you in finding the right job. Self-employment might also be an option we can explore! And, of course, if you're already employed but looking for something new, we can help there too.

Finding a new job

Looking for work can feel like a real struggle, especially when things don’t move as quickly as you’d like. One of the best ways to use your time between jobs is to refresh your CV and make sure it accurately reflects your skills, experience and aspirations. We can help you review your CV, get ready to reach out to an employer and prepare for an interview.
