People looking for careers or financial advice can now access both thanks to a unique event taking place in Princesshay next week.

The event, run by Exeter Works and Barclays, aims to act as a one stop shop for anybody looking for help following the pandemic.

And staff at Exeter Works say that the timing couldn’t be better, as hundreds of people in the city receive exam results this week and look to move into either higher education or a new career.

Rosie Bates from Exeter Works says:

“For Exeter Works to link up with Barclays for an event such as this is hugely positive because it means that anyone in the city can access help with finding jobs or training courses, together with advice on managing their money.”

“People looking for help and advice around employment or training also often need to access information about finances, especially if they are taking their first steps towards financial independence, so to do both together will be invaluable.”

The event takes place next Monday, 16 August outside Barclays Bank in Princesshay, where the Barclays community van ‘Albert’ will be placed. The team will have Digital Eagles there to support members of the public with any questions that they may have around banking, managing finances and student accounts.

Exeter Works advisers will also be on hand to assist with any element of the job application process, from finding opportunities to writing CVs, applying for jobs or securing those all-important training or apprenticeship courses.
