We’ve been shortlisted for a national employability award for our work helping people’s careers.
We deliver a range of programmes designed to help people find jobs, training opportunities or work experience.
Our Accelerate, YES and #Iwill programmes help hundreds of people each year to enhance their careers through confidence building, tailored support, job searching, employer engagement, skills development, interview techniques and much more.
The work has been recognised by being shortlisted for Housing Provider of the Year at the ERSA (Employment Related Services Association) Employability Awards. Now in their eighth year, the awards applaud best practice and the significant achievements of everyone working to support jobseekers in their progression in to work.
Hannah Taylor-Dales, Acis’ Service Development Manager, said: “We’re overwhelmed to have been shortlisted in this category, recognising the tremendous work our teams have done to help people enhance their careers. Each day, our teams and our partners deliver services that are having a real impact on people’s lives.”
ERSA Chief Executive, Elizabeth Taylor, said: “Now more so than ever, it is important to shine the spotlight on the amazing organisations and people that work to make the UK employment support sector the dynamic and effective force for good that it is.”
Minister for Employment, Mims Davies MP, said: “Organisations like these provide life changing support to jobseekers across communities, opening doors and helping them build skills to thrive in successful careers and it’s great to see this deserved recognition.
“This additional support alongside our local jobcentres will continue to play a vital role as we move into recovery and push to level up opportunities.”
The winners of the ERSA Employability Awards 2020 will be announced at an online event on Wednesday 22 July.
Our YES project is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and delivered in partnership with Voluntary Centre Services, while the #Iwill project is funded by Clarion Futures and delivered in partnership with Sheffield charity All About You.
