Local approaches to employability

  • Improve the chances of claimants securing work by facilitating the connection with employers.
  • Promoting Universal Jobmatch to employers
  • Promoting Get Britain Working initiatives to employers.
  • External Relations, Partnership and Employer Engagement Managers build relationships with organisations which add value to the business and are targeted towards helping claimants back to work.
  • Partnership approach also involves building awareness and skills with our partners so that all of the welfare reform messages are received consistently and timely.

There is a range of provision (both contracted and non contracted) tailored to meet claimant needs to help them with the support they need to get back to work. Provision is put into place where gaps and needs are identified e.g ESOL, IT basic skills.
