Employment Services

European Social Fund logoSince 1997 we have helped over 25,000 Gateshead residents move closer to or into work by providing employment support across the borough.

We are supporting the Council's efforts to create a strong, sustainable and inclusive economy by helping our residents to take positive steps to maximise their potential and thrive.

If you're unemployed and looking for work, trying to secure your first job or just starting to think about work as an option. We can help.

The support we offer is tailored to your needs and recognises that everyone's circumstances are different - there is no 'one way' back to work.

If it's not a quick fix we will give you the support you need to overcome problems that are keeping you from getting a job. This could include:

  • information and advice
  • coaching and mentoring
  • health and wellbeing
  • debt and money management advice
  • help with digital skills
  • work experience
