Find a job

Where should I look for a job? What support can the Skills Launchpad offer?

There are many reasons why you might be looking for a new job right now.  You may be feeling uncertain about your future, you may be at risk of redundancy, experiencing changing circumstances or leaving further or higher education.  You may have decided to change direction as a result of lockdown where you have had time to think about alternatives. 

Covid-19 has changed the way we live and work with growing uncertainty on how this will affect us individually, as communities and as a city.  


The great news is that there are jobs available right now in Plymouth.


By identifying your transferable skills and adapting your job seeking and online skills, you could open new doors and consider up-skilling or retraining opportunities to put you in the best position for new employment. Through the Skills Launchpad we aim to help local people find out about the skills they may need to apply for and fill current jobs locally, and also look provide you with a place to learn about Plymouth’s future jobs, which will be created as our local businesses work hard to recover and the city’s investment programme takes effect.
