The Foundations to Employment (F t E) project provides holistic, person-centred one-to-one support for people facing a range of barriers which prevent them returning to work.

This part time post is an extension to the project and funded by the Oak Foundation for a two year period. Our experience to date indicates that people with a criminal conviction face additional issues when seeking employment. Within the Foundations team, this new post will have a key role in fostering relationships with a range of employers to identify appropriate employment opportunities and to support service users in gaining and maintaining work.
