Building better opportunities - employment support

We give people high quality information, advice and guidance (IAG) to help them navigate a route towards a sustainable and rewarding job or a return to education or training. We help people identify the type of jobs they would suit and give them support to succeed in recruitment processes. We focus on getting people into the right job, not just any job.

Our approach

  1. Building inspiration and aspiration
  2. Supporting resilience and wellbeing
  3. Achieving a positive progression

Many of our schemes continue to provide support to people after they enter the workplace, to help ensure a positive outcome for them and their employer.

We have created social enterprises and jobs within our community programmes that can provide work experience for those with a lack of track record

Many of our schemes continue to provide support to people after they enter the workplace, to help ensure a positive outcome for them and their employer and to support onward career progression.

We create social enterprises and jobs within our community programmes that can provide work experience and help people break out of the ‘no job – no experience – no job’ cycle.
