How can the supported employment service help me find a job?
Firstly, we will talk to you about your skills, abilities and wishes. This will enable us to plan your route to employment. After this, we can offer support and advice in finding employment with local businesses.
We can work with you to:
We will help you create a customised employment plan that will recognise your strengths and abilities as well as areas of vocational interest or expertise.
We can help you to find either paid or voluntary work by matching your abilities and interests to the most suitable vacancy. We can help you find employment that matches your individual wishes, for example we will help you find work, even if you only want to work for an hour a week. We can not only help you with searching for jobs but we can help you apply for suitable positions and provide support for any interviews you get.
Support for people with little or no work experience
We have helped people with different amounts of work experience to find meaningful and stimulating work with local businesses. These include people who have had no work experience at all, have just left school or further education, or who have been carers for some time.
There are many options available for you, even if you think you do not have enough experience or you have been away from the world of work for too long. Some of the ways we can help are:
Work experience and job tasters
Finding what employment and training options are available
There are many options available for employment and training but finding the right information can sometimes be difficult.
We publish a guide to employment and training options for people seeking employment or training, taking you through the options available for your circumstances.
Once you have found a job
After you have found a job, we can provide job support from your first day at work until you are fully independent.
We can also arrange relevant training if required. For more information on how we can support you in work, see the help and support in work page.
