Experience Counts (York) CIC

We believe passionately that people over 50 years old have a huge amount of untapped knowledge and expertise to offer in employment, self-employment and volunteering.  They are also flexible, adaptable, capable of both learning new skills and also understanding how many of their skills are transferable.  What they lack currently is a holistic, realistic and supportive programme which takes account of personal circumstances and health or family constraints to enable them to move forward positively and successfully. We offer that training programme.

Who?: Welcome to Experience Counts (York) CIC.  We are a Community Interest Company  run by (left to right) Julie Kitching, Simon Errington and Jackie Evans.  We are supported by Neil Hindhaugh, Peter Swindells and Lucy Bebb.  Experience Count (York) CIC is registered with Companies House (Company Number: 10421223).

What?:  Free workshops to look at what your future opportunities might be and help you get ready for them.

When?: Please contact us for information about our next programme.

How?: We help you find your hidden talents, build confidence, inform you about modern recruitment processes to help you move into employment, self-employment, volunteering or further training.

This is the difference we make!
