A course which helps ambitious job seekers in Cornwall find their dream job is being relaunched.

Stand Out from the Crowd was originally run by Unlocking Potential from 2009-2015 and provides training within a variety of local business premises. Out of more than 450 participants, eight out of ten landed a job within six months of taking part.

The new course is being funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) with support from a number of prominent Cornish businesses, including The Rick Stein Group.

Head of human resources at Rick Stein, Michael Rabone, said: “Stand Out from the Crowd ensures individuals are better prepared for work. I see first-hand that the course helps people to appreciate and understand how businesses work, subsequently making the interview and assessment process easier to manage for an employer.”

The course helps job seekers develop their self-awareness, build courage and understand what employers are looking for – on top of employability advice on CVs, interviews and communication. The next course starts on Monday, November 6.
