Employers

We work in partnership with many employers in the South West which enables us to place clients in sustainable employment positions and in addition give the employer the reassurance that the employee has been supported by i2a and has the required skills and attitude for a particular job role.

The process begins with the employer alerting us to a vacancy within their organisation, if we have a suitable candidate who is eager and suitable for the role our Employment Coach will make a recommendation to the employer. The Employment Coach will then spend time with the client preparing and supporting them through the application, interview and acceptance process. The client may need interview coaching for example which could take the form of one-to-one support or training at an i2a workshop.

Our aim is not only to support people into work but also ensure they keep those roles. Therefore we support them throughout the job seeking process and also after they have secured the post. The Employment Coach will ensure the new employee is happy in the role and offer continued support if any is needed.

Volunteering

You may choose volunteering for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills, refresh employability skills after a career break or build on existing experience and knowledge. You can also get in touch with the team at Inspired to Achieve to help you find the ideal placement to suit your goals.
