JobSPEC is our Supported Employment service which helps people to find and maintain employment. Each year a number of people make the transition from the Social Enterprises into paid work. It has developed over 60 opportunities for people into a wide range of types of employment such as clerical, catering, classroom assistant, caretaker, supermarket assistant, vehicle valeting and garden centre assistant roles.
In addition, The JobSPEC team also play a supporting role within our social enterprise provision, working with the people supported to ensure their work placement is meeting their needs as outlined in their support plan and support them in working towards any goals.
The work of this innovative service together with our social enterprises was externally recognised as runner up finalists for a prestigious BIBA award (Be Inspired Business Awards) www.thebibas.co.uk.
