Bury Employment Support & Training
Bury Employment Support and Training (Bury EST) are a supported employment agency run by Bury Council. Based in the town centre of Bury, we provide a service to residents in the Bury Metropolitan District. We aim to work in partnership with employers, individuals and organisations to create a socially inclusive and diverse workforce. We provide a recruitment service for people who find it difficult to get or keep a job because of various factors such as disability, age or ethnicity. We also offer advice, support and practical assistance for local and regional employers who aim to diversify their workforce and offer equal opportunity recruitment. We currently work with a diverse customer group including, disabled and disadvantaged clients. Ex offenders, clients with substance mis-use issues, and young adults 16-25 who may become NEET.
Bury EST has vast experience in the supported employment arena and have worked with local and national stakeholders and partner organisations to successfully deliver various supported employment projects. These partners have included:
• Job Centre Plus,
• Learning Skills Council,
• PCT and numerous vocational colleges and 3rd sector organisations.
We have a successful track record of delivering long term projects, namely, Workstep, Workwise, Transitions and Forensic/Health Project and have been awarded OFSTED GRADE 1 OUTSTANDING for our service delivery of the DWP workstep provision. Under Right to Control we currently work with the Work Choice Programme as part of the Manchester Area Partnership.
