Routes for employers

Routes is looking for local employers to get involved in the project and support local people who want to work but find it hard to get a job.

One of the services that Routes offers to its participants is the chance to undertake a career work placement. In order to arrange these, we are looking to build relationships with local employers in Brighton and Hove.

What is a career work placement?

A career work placement is a voluntary position which typically takes place for up to 12 hours  a week and lasts around 12 weeks. They are of huge benefit to our participants who will be able to experience a real work environment and develop their work-related skills.

What can a Routes participant offer you?

Our Routes participants come to us because they want to work but find it difficult to secure a job. They may experience personal barriers to job success, or they may not have worked before. Or, they may be very experienced, highly qualified and simply be looking for work again after a long period away from employment.

Whatever their circumstances, a Routes participant can offer you extra capacity and the willingness to learn as much as possible from you.

How can you get involved?

Our partner – The Whitehawk Inn – is the Routes organisation responsible for finding career work placements for Routes participants.

Please contact us to find out more about this fantastic opportunity which will be of mutual benefit to you and our participants.
