Employment Service At Unity

Unity Housing Association - Employment Services Team

Unity Employment Services Team (UEST) was set up May 2011 to support Unity tenants and the communities in which they live to get back into employment and training.

Similar to the previous Tenants Into Work (TIW) project run by Unity from 2008 to 2011, the work of the employment service team is based on the need to assist people who are furthest from the labour market.

The team has worked to establish contacts within the training and employment sectors so that tenants have a variety of services they can use, depending on their own personal circumstances.

How can the Employment Services Team help?

Each person has an individual reason for unemployment and the team ensures that each customer has an individual plan tailored to their specific needs.
