Our Better Working Futures service supports people who face additional barriers to finding work, such as those who are disabled, in receipt of health-related benefits or are long term unemployed.

We aim to bring together jobseekers, support services and employers in Nottingham, Newark and Sherwood, Bassetlaw and Rushcliffe to provide greater opportunities for those looking for work.

Our employment advisors offer specialised advice, guidance, skills training and health support and follow a simple plan that includes:

  • Getting to know you
  • Creating a plan with you about how you can start working
  • Managing your health
  • Offering help with finding training and skills support
  • Helping you apply for jobs
  • Supporting you with personal circumstances which might affect your chances of getting a job
  • Keeping in touch once you start work.

Referrals to Better Working Futures are made through Job Centre Plus.
