Frequently asked questions:

  • How do I get to The Employability Trust?

Check out our info page for directions to The Employability Trust and details of buses that stop near by

  • What do I need to wear?

Our factory can be a little cold so we recommend warm, old clothing. If you have safety boots then please wear them. Job Centre Plus may be able to help you with buying a set of work boots or even warm clothing if needed.

  • What do I need to bring?

Photo ID such as a passport or a driving licence would be helpful, a letter with your National Insurance number on it and a utility bill showing your home address. Also bring any certificates or evidence of past learning or work experience that you may have

  • Do I need to be referred by an organisation?

No. Although organisations such as Job Centre Plus and Durham Works can refer you, you may also contact us directly yourself. We get a lot of recommendations from family and friends who have been here before and have passed on their good news.

  • What about lunch?

We recommend bringing your lunch with you. We have a fridge, microwave and kettle that you may use. There is a Cooplands van that visits to sell sandwiches, pasties, soups and cakes or there is a burger van nearby if you forget your packed lunch.
