The Job Finding Support package will be an on-line service providing tailored one-to-one support to help people who have recently lost their job to increase their employability and provide links with suitable employers.

We are considering options to provide additional provision for Job Finding Support through a contracted provision. This would be subject to a commercial exercise that will be carried out as a fair and open competition to select a provider who will be working alongside Jobcentre Plus Work Coaches. We will publish more details shortly.
