WCC Supported Employment Service

As part of the "Having a Job" Plan, Worcestershire County Council delivers a Supported Employment Service across Worcestershire and can also offer information and advice on where you can find other help with training, work experience, finding a job and keeping a job.

What is the Supported Employment Service?

This can include:

  •  We work with you to try and find an appropriate job, work experience or training
  •  We can provide help with making applications for jobs, interview skills, and arrangements for getting to interviews
  •  We can help you arrange support while you are learning your new job, getting to work, staying safe and being happy at work
  •  We visit you at the job or work experience and check you are getting on well
  •  We will continue the support throughout your employment with calls, visits and reviews

We are happy to take enquiries regarding advice, information and signposting
