Employment Services

We provide a weekly jobs club and maintain a large range of vacancies, and we have regular contact with employers.  If you are unemployed, or are considering a career change, higher or further education, then our team will be pleased to help you to explore all possible options.

During job clubs clients are seen on a drop-in basis, allowing them to fit our services around their needs (childcare, shift work, part-time courses).

Follow up appointments are made for a time that suits the client.

There are dedicated workshops and Job clubs available weekly offering a range of employment services on a one to one and group level.
