Employability and Inclusion

Northumberland County Council offers a number of employment and skills programmes, in partnership with our funders and delivery partners, to help our residents raise their skills and move into work. This may be for those who are moving into work for the first time, need to change jobs, want to improve their skills, or are returning to the labour market. All support is tailored to individual needs.

By using a variety of delivery partners in the voluntary/community, public and private sectors, programmes can offer support to meet a wide range of needs. This includes helping you to gain the skills and experience that employers are looking for. Northumberland County Council also works with local businesses and organisations to match residents with vacancies, and the kind of work experience to help a move into work.

If you would like any further information on our work on employability and inclusion please contact us via email employabilityandinclusion@northumberland.gov.uk or via telephone on 0345 600 6400
