On August 1, 2022, NCWorks will consolidate its Granville County and Vance County NCWorks Career Center offices and open a new, expanded location at 826 Garnett Street in Henderson. After July 22, 2022, the locations at 111 Hilltop Village in Oxford and 857 S. Beckford Drive in Henderson will no longer be operational, and all in-person appointments will be moved to the new Garnett Street location. The new Center will be open to the public beginning August 1, 2022.
This move will allow residents of Franklin, Granville, Person, Vance, and Warren counties to access a unified NCWorks Career Center, increasing the availability of onsite services aimed at assisting jobseekers and employers. Career Center services will continue to be available in all 5 counties of the Kerr-Tar region through in-person access points at workforce partner locations or virtually, by appointment or on a limited schedule.
The new NCWorks Career Center will maintain the previous locations’ hours of operation which are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm and Thursday from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm.
For more information about NCWorks Career Center in-person or virtual services, call the Center at 252-438-6129 or visit www.ncworks.gov.
The Kerr-Tar Workforce Development Board administers federally funded programs that connect talent to jobs through training opportunities, jobseeker assistance, and services to employers.
The Kerr-Tar Regional Council of Governments is in the process of developing a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) and is requesting your assistance in gaining knowledge about the region and its counties. The CEDS team is conducting an online survey to assess the region’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. The data from this survey will be used to inform policy makers across the region about what is going well, what needs improvement, and to guide focus areas over the next 5 years.
Anyone who lives, works, or has an interest in the Kerr-Tar region is encouraged to respond to the online survey. To respond to the survey, click the link for the appropriate county and complete by August 19, 2022. Please only complete one survey. For more information, contact Michael Kelly, Planning & Economic Development Director at 252-436-2040 or email@example.com.
