Routes to employment

An initiative to support residents in moving towards employment

The routes to employment team has been in existence for over 20 years and its purpose is to:

  • Facilitate recruitment & selection for jobs for Redcar & Cleveland employers.
  • Remove any final barriers to employment for Redcar & Cleveland residents e.g., initial transport costs, provision of PPE, training.
  • Provide appropriate information, advice and guidance to residents of the Borough seeking employment.
  • Support employers to access or signpost them to any available funding towards Apprentice salaries.
  • Support employers with the recruitment of Apprentices.
  • Signpost employers to source appropriate vocational training.
