Granville & Vance County NCWorks Career Centers Relocating

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.
