SEDGEMOOR District Council is hosting a free informal event to help people look for work using the web.

It is being held at Blake Hall, St Saviours Avenue, Bridgwater, on January 29 between 10am and 2pm.

Workshops will help jobseekers understand more about Psychometric testing (10.15am), using online application processes such as Universal Job Match (10.45am), and the process of registering with the EDF Energy Brokerage (11.15am).

Laura Fowler, Sedgemoor’s employment and skills outreach worker, said: “Completing job applications online can be very hard for jobseekers who are not confident with their IT skills or who don’t have ready access to computers or broadband.”

The Engine Room will be discussing the I.T facilities it has available for public use at 12noon. It will also be offering computer workshops.

Asda will be giving attendees a guide through of their web-based application process from 12.30pm.

Martin Kay at Somerset Social Media, based in Cheddar, will also be covering a session on ‘Social Media use for job searching’ from 1pm.
