The session, organised by County Durham Housing Group, will be held on Wednesday, 25 May from 10am to 12.30pm at Gully House, Wingate.

Claire Maddison, Employment and Skills Officer at County Durham Housing Group, said: “Interviews can be a daunting prospect for people who don’t have much experience of applying for jobs.

“Attendees on our free informal course will find out what to expect when they go for an interview and how to remain calm and confident under pressure.

“Anyone wanting more information or to book a free place at the workshop should email or call us on 0191 349 7657.”

County Durham Housing Group’s Employment and Skills Team provides support to tenants of Dale & Valley Homes, Durham City Homes and East Durham Homes to find a job, access training, gain apprenticeships and venture into self-employment.

Future workshops across the county will be publicised online at
