Supporting Adults into employment

How Has the Pandemic Affected Employment and Economic Activity?

As of November 2021, there are a record number of UK job vacancies. We’re here to help adults who are not in training or employment to engage with the workforce and find a fulfilling career that suits them.

The recent COVID-19 crisis has also revealed the value of our NHS service. We understand that the healthcare workforce is critical in responding to epidemics and health crises. With so many roles available within healthcare, encouraging people to consider careers in health and social care will not only strengthen the NHS, but will also improve employment rates in a post-COVID-19 society.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the amount of economically inactive people has increased. We want to ensure people are aware of support packages they are entitled, whether employed, in-training, or otherwise (ONS).
