Getting under way on Tuesday, November 12 most likely at the Phoenix Centre, Mentoring Circles is set to offer claimants a whole range of hints, tips and advice.

Karen Millar, from the Department of Work and Pensions' (DWP) employer and partnership team in Elgin Jobcentre, said: "Through these sessions, which we're delivering along with Skills Development Scotland, we're looking at helping customers in a number of different areas.

"This includes identifying strengths, help with CVs and one-to-one careers guidance.

"They're open to all customers."

It is hoped that in the final of the four sessions a Moray employer will be on hand to add their perspective. Preparing for interviews and some handy points to bear in mind both before and during an interview are also set to feature in the second half of the programme.

Jobseekers interested in signing up for Mentoring Circles should speak to their DWP work coach.
