Working Heads is an innovative employment project which helps jobseekers to create a great first impression and access employers in an engaging and innovative way through a video CV.
Working Heads is an innovative new project which helps jobseekers to create a great first impression and access employers in an engaging and innovative way through a video CV, as opposed to a traditional written CV.
The programme supports jobseekers through workshops which take them through that process of creating a video CV with impact. During the video – which is never more than 90 seconds in length – the candidate provides answers to three key questions designed to give an insight into their soft skills and personality. Questions such as: What is your best skill? What job do you see yourself doing in 2 years? What inspires you?
The video CV is then uploaded to an online portal, as part of the jobseeker’s profile, which is then accessible by a network of local employers looking for candidates to fill existing job opportunities. Jobseekers are also supported through workshops to identify their skills and qualities and to present themselves professionally in front of potential employers. Further workshops will be offered to review how job searching has progressed and offer peer support and learning from the process.
