This page tells you about our employability support including Work Programme, Generation North East, Better Working Futures, and skills training to help you find work.
The Employability Team are here to help you if you are unemployed or unwaged, and want to find secure, paid employment.
We can help you through our two coaching programmes to help you get into work.
We can help you by supporting you to gain relevant skills and experience that employers will look for.
We also work with local businesses and organisations, matching job seekers to vacancies and work placements. The team can provide personalised support to help you access a range of opportunities.
Generation North East: The programme offers 16 - 29 year olds* (*subject to availability) tailored support, information, advice, and guidance to help you to find work. You can engage digitally with an Employment Coach through Google, Facebook and email or you can work with a coach face-to-face.
We will help you to update your CV, complete application forms, and create effective letters to approach employers for work. We also offer a vacancy matching service, work experience placements and access to job and training opportunities.
You can join this programme at any time and do not need to be referred by anyone.
One of the things people feel most acutely when out of work is isolation. It’s easy to feel that you’re facing this all alone. Job clubs, where you can meet and be supported by experts as you search for employment, have been very successful in helping people to find permanent work.
We focus on helping you to prepare your CV and how to create compelling cover letters. We can also help to boost your confidence as you get ready for interviews. We run budget sessions to help you cope on benefits until you are able to get back into work. Our experts are always at hand to help you make the most of opportunities as they come along.
Job clubs are FREE to attend. You can come along for as long as it takes to get you into work. The best news is that you can come and join us at any time.
Here is the job club programme:
