  • Wednesday, 10 February between 10am and 12.30pm at Murton Housing Partnership.

Claire Maddison, Employment and Skills Officer at County Durham Housing Group, said: “These informal sessions are a great way for people to update their current CV, or if they are writing one for the first time, find out what they should include.

“We want to show people how to stand out from the crowd and highlight their best assets and achievements in a written format.”
