All ENABLE Works services have one thing in common – you.
Our Employment Coordinators will get to know you, drawing up a profile of your skills, ambitions and things to work on so we can help you make progress.

Before you start

We will support you to understand the support we offer. We will listen to you, helping you achieve what you want to.

Not all ENABLE Works services are about finding a job immediately. Lots of them are about building up your skills and confidence so you have more opportunities and a better chance at securing a job when it’s right for you.

Matching you

If you do want to find a paid job, we will match you with an employer that suits your ambitions and that sees your potential for their business. We’ll put a plan in place and support to make sure the job works out.

Keep in touch

We’ll keep in touch with you and be there if anything changes and you need a bit more support in the job.

When the support has finished, we’ll ask for your feedback. If you haven’t got a job, we’ll help you decide on your next steps.
