Employment Support

Competition for all jobs is fierce, and popular job roles can receive hundreds even thousands of applications – either CVs, or application forms – or a combination of both. 

It is a fact that the longer a person is unemployed the lower the motivation to find work becomes. With decreasing confidence, job search and interviews become disheartening.

However, our specially designed 'Stepping Forward' and 'Foundation 4 the Future' programmes aim to holistically help individuals on their journey into securing employment through the facilitation of essential life tools, such as building confidence, goal setting and positive mind-set. We lift the lid on the secrets of recruitment and what individuals should be doing to ensure they stand out from the crowd. 

We pride ourselves on our into work success rates, and the fact that we have positively changed so many lives.


Our training is delivered within a small and personalised format, which builds a group spirit and team work. Our delivery times and lengths can be tailored to suit. However, we believe in tailoring our delivery to groups such as; 

  • Lone Parents
  • NEETs
  • Prison Leavers
  • 18 - 24 year olds
  • Over 50's

This way we ensure our programmes are relevant and engage. This also allows us to add in, as required, additional activities / facilities, such as; personal challenges (activity days / child care). Furthermore, we also offer a one-to-one service to give clients that extra support / empowerment.
