Working with our pledged employers and partner organisations, Norwich for Jobs provides the following activities and support:
- Employer engagement: We work with companies - large, medium and small – and encourage them to take on a young person, offer work experience, and participate in other Norwich for Jobs activities to help develop young peoples’ employability skills.
- Monday Support Club: This is designed to engage with individuals within a group environment. Every Monday is different and sometimes involves external visits. It is deliberately set up to develop and stretch customers in a friendly, comfortable way, which is challenging, by delivering various activities and social interaction exercises. The focus is on self-development, communication and confidence building.
- One-to-one support by Work Coaches: Norwich for Jobs offers One-to-One support to help address young peoples’ needs, which is provided for as long as this support is needed.
- Training providers and youth organisations: We work with over 100 partner organisations to help provide young people with the support they need to move them forward and into employment.
- NHS Wellbeing & MIND: Professionals from these organisations run various workshops for Norwich for Jobs customers to help tackle anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and negative thoughts.
- Mental Health advocate: Norwich for Jobs has its own Mental Health advocate who provides invaluable, confidential one-to-one support to help young people with issues such as social anxiety, low self-esteem and low confidence.
- Norfolk Community Learning Services: Working with Norfolk Community Learning Services, Norwich for Jobs has run various confidence building and employability courses to support vulnerable customers.
