We are a proud member of the Fusion Group, who run the Building Better Opportunities scheme. It helps to deliver employment support across Worcestershire.

The scheme is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community fund.

What is Building Better Opportunities?

We have two Fusion Job Coaches who work with individuals on a one-to-one basis across Worcestershire through the Building Better Opportunities Programme.

 

Each participant has a personal package of support based on their own individual circumstances and needs.

 

By recognising and building on their strengths and abilities, participants will gain the confidence they need to enter the world of employment, training or job searching.

 

Participants receive help with:

  • CV writing
  • Finding vacancies
  • Completing applications
  • Interview techniques
  • Confidence building.
  • Support with travel and childcare costs.

 

 

How do I apply?

To apply for the scheme you must be:

  • A resident living in Worcestershire
  • Not engaged in any kind of work
  • Of working age

 

To find out more and ask about working with our job coaches, call: 01905 342635 or 01905 342467 

 

George's story

George was helped by the Building Better Opportnites programme. He was diagnosed with autism and struggled with work for seven years.

 

He met our job coach who helped him apply for a job so he could get used to the process.

 

George ended up being offered the job.

 

He said: “I definitely have more self-confidence and I feel a lot happier, more valued and appreciated thanks to the scheme.

 

“The job coaches make you feel comfortable and you shouldn’t give up on your hopes and dreams.”
