Job Centre Plus have supported The Employability Trust since the very beginning. We have an outstanding partnership with the Peterlee, Seaham, Hartlepool and Durham branches. Many of the advisors have even visited our facilities and taken part in some of the projects that candidates work on.

This hands on knowledge means that the advisors have a practical understanding of what we can offer local people who find themselves struggling to gain employment.

“Being new to this area my visit to The Employability Trust was refreshing. Your passion and value in delivering the service to local unemployed is key to your successes. Changing people’s lives. I’m looking forward to working together”

Christina Blaney, Employment Engagement Manager, Job Centre Plus



“Your success is all down to working so brilliantly together and pooling expertise and resource. From the Work Coach referral and supporting their customers throughout your courses, the EA team for leading on the programmes and having built up excellent local employer relations. Your team for being so good at what they do and of course the belief we have for our customers and supporting them to do what ever it takes to succeed. That’s what it’s all about. Life changing…… Well done to everybody involved”

Vicky Hopper, Employer Adviser Manager
