The Supported Employment Service at West Lothian Council aim to increase the number of people with additional support needs, a health condition or Disability into paid mainstream employment.
Our team deliver specialist employability support to West Lothian job seekers as well as an advisory service for local employers to become Disability Confident plus support when recruiting or retaining staff.
Supported Employment participants are allocated a designated experienced employment advisor who will work with them 1-2-1.
Seeking work – we identify your skills and any barriers then action plan you for a future in work. We produce your CV, help with job applications and prepare you for future job interviews.
In employment – we can support both you and your employer so you can sustain work or support your move to alternative employment.
During Lockdown adapting the service to remote working allows us to continue to support our client group. In the last 3 months the team have successfully delivered a wide range of Wellbeing and Employability training sessions by video call.
