Employability Services – overview

Working with businesses and employees to support people into work

Employability Services supports people across Northern Lincolnshire aged 14 years and up to retirement, developing their employability skills and supporting them on a pathway to sustainable employment.

Working with individuals looking for work

Employability Services promotes social inclusion and understands the difficulties people face in finding suitable work due to lack of experience, skills, opportunity or other barriers such as a disability. The service provides a person centred approach offering support to break down any barriers to employment.

This is achieved via a multi award-winning Employability ‘Pathway Model’ of initiatives, including:-

  • Apprenticeships
  • Traineeships
  • Internships
  • Intermediate Labour Market opportunities
  • Structured Voluntary Placements
  • Young People’s Work Experience
  • Supported Internships
  • Work Trials and Taster Days


The service works in partnership with other multi agencies who support the skills and worklessness agenda including Jobcentre Plus, NELC, YPSS, Training Providers, Schools, Adult Social Care and Prince’s Trust.

Working with Businesses to provide an employment support package

Employability Services also work closely with businesses to establish their recruitment needs and to help them find qualified and motivated employees for their roles.

Unlike traditional recruitment agencies, Employability Services provide an aftercare support package continuing to work with businesses and individuals after placement, providing further help if required for the employer and employee.

We want to make sure people are given every opportunity to reach their full potential and career aspirations, and that employers get skilled and motivated employees.

Following an initial assessment, a Traineeship work placement was identified with the Continence Team at Care Plus Group as a Trainee Continence Support Worker; helping and supporting the team with a variety of administration, calls and stock rotation tasks.
