The Belfast Works Project is an employability programme for people who are unemployed and not in training and education and who live in the city of Belfast. The Project is a partnership of employment service providers, led by Ashton Community Trust, working collectively to deliver employability opportunities right across the city of Belfast. The Project seeks to target those most removed from the labour market and get them back into employment. In Belfast, there is a team of almost 40 Mentors providing one to one support to individuals either in-house or in over 70 outreach centres. These highly skilled LEMIS+ Project Mentors offer careers, education and training advice/guidance and give people support they need to progress into employment. Belfast Works clients have the opportunity to undertake a range of training in areas such as ICT, childcare, language for work and personal development. Pre-employment courses such as call centre training will also be available to Belfast Works clients where a clear employability outcome will be achieved as a result of this training. There are lots of benefits to this Project. For example if an employer in the health and social care sector is working with the Belfast Works Project and they have a number of vacancies that are dependent on applicants having a health and social care qualification, then we can offer clients interested in these jobs relevant training so they meet minimum requirements for interview. The Belfast Works Project also has its own dedicated Employer Liaison Service (ELS) which works with employers’ right across Belfast to secure job opportunities for people connected to the Project. The ELS matches employers seeking people with people seeking work.
