At Complete Skills Solutions, we make it our mission to help people get back into work.

For those who struggle to find work or have been unemployed long-term, the prospect of finding a job can be somewhat daunting. It is all too easy to become comfortable with the daily routines we currently follow. But, having a job can open endless doors for us, allowing us to grow as individuals and live more balanced, fulfilling lives. Of course, not everyone has the luxury of being able to work but for those of us that do, we’ve highlighted some of the benefits that having a job can bring to your life.

A steady income means more financial freedom
By no means is money the be-all and end-all but it can certainly help us to live more carefree lives. Working can enable us to treat our loved ones to gifts, buy ourselves new clothes and spend time socialising with friends and family. The cost of living itself can be expensive, so taking the pressure off by securing employment can relieve some of the inevitable stress.

Making friends and building relationships with others
Building positive relationships with others is an essential part of living a healthy and happy life. People who are more socially connected to family, friends or their community are happier, physically healthier and live longer, with fewer mental health problems than people who are less well connected, according to The Mental Health Foundation. Joining a new place of work is a fantastic way to improve your communication and social skills and even make new friends as you become more involved in after-work activities, social events and team building.

Intellectual challenge
Your brain releases dopamine after you have achieved something which is why completing a task, big or small, is a great way to trigger feelings of accomplishment, satisfaction and happiness. Getting a new job will enable you to learn new skills which is one of the most important things you can do to help you develop in your professional and personal life. You may find it is something you are particularly good at and proceed to become a specialist in the area. New skills can help us to achieve our goals which result in a boost of confidence and motivation, having a lasting effect on the rest of our day and subsequently, our lives.

Deciding what sector or job you would like to explore can be a daunting decision, particularly if you have been off work for a while or would like to try something completely new. You may feel as though your options are limited due to a lack of experience or qualifications, however, there are endless options available for every individual, waiting to be explored.

At Complete Skills Solutions, we offer a range of fully funded courses across five different industries. Our training opportunities cover Health and Social Care, Hospitality & Services, Construction Health & Safety, Warehousing & Logistics and Barbering – meaning there is something for everyone. Our specialist tutors can guide you through the process, whether you’re a beginner or looking to become more of a specialist in the field, helping you to secure a job on completion too.
