For Jobseekers

We work alongside clients to get them jobready and find work. Whatever employment history, qualifications or life-stage. Community Links will identify the support needed to make the next step.

"My advisor supported me through CV-writing,
applications, what to say – and what not to say
– at interviews. She stuck at it, telling me about
all sorts of job vacancies. She helped, not only
with trying to find me work, but the other side of
things too, even supporting me to attend counselling
sessions at Community Links. Eventually I got a job
with Barking and Dagenham Council."

For Policymakers

We have a national policy programme that is focussed on sharing the learning from our employment services, giving our clients a voice and influencing political forums and policymakers. Our team sit on expert panels and boards at the Department of Work and Pensions and the Employment Related Services Association.

“There are many good providers of employment
and skills, but in my experience, third sector
deliverers can be amongst the best. Community Links
is deeply embedded in their local community,
able to link up services around the individual and often
go that extra mile. They are also trusted - an essential
factor when
building the relationships to change people’s lives.”
Kirsty McHugh, CEO ERSA
(Employment Related Services Association)
