Works Better isn’t like other ‘Into Work’ programmes we support individuals who want to get into work overcome the barriers that are stopping them.
Our job is to get people ‘work ready’ and that will mean something slightly different for everyone we help. We all have barriers that stop us doing things – and in the case of getting a job it could be childcare issues, low confidence or a lack of basic IT skills. Our experienced team will create a unique voluntary programme for each individual that maximises their potential and gets them back into work.
To support people into work we have dedicated Job Connectors who work with employers and who see the benefit of employing someone returning to work in sourcing suitable vacancies to create sustainable employment.
Works Better can support individuals who have been unemployed from Day one, and has a focus on supporting people who are aged 25 and over who haven’t accessed the work programme previously.
