Employment Support

Getting into work

For everyone to benefit from a thriving economy, our residents need to be able to work, and our employers find the people and skills they need.

Being in work - or simply taking steps towards getting a job – is also proven to help our emotional and physical health and wellbeing.

That’s why the Council is working directly with residents, as well as alongside local partners, to help people at all stages of their working life to overcome some of the challenges of getting into, staying in, and progressing at work.

For example, the Council’s Pathway’s Rotherham programme provides people who are not in education, training or employment access to dedicated key workers who can offer help tailored to individual needs – including coaching, help with childcare, CV writing and to access education, training or work experience.
