Shaw Trust Employment Services

Employment services

Shaw Trust has over thirty years’ experience of providing employment services to help people from a diverse range of backgrounds to find and stay in work. We work with local commissioners like Kent County Council and with national commissioners such as the Department for Work and Pensions to deliver employment programmes across the UK.
 
Our employment programmes help individuals to gain the skills they need to develop a successful career. We offer employability training, interview skills practice, and holistic and personalised support to enable individuals to overcome their barriers to work. At Shaw Trust we believe that everyone has the right to engage in meaningful work that they enjoy and that helps them to live independent and inclusive lives.
