Everyone’s path through Supported Employment looks different, just like every business is different, but here are some of the steps you can expect to take when working with DurhamEnable.
Our Job Coaches are always looking for opportunities to make connections with local employers. We may reach out to you, but we also love to meet employers who are interested in working with us!
Job Coaches will learn about your recruitment needs and speak to you more about how Supported Employment can help your business.
This is also a great chance to ask us any questions you may have about DurhamEnable and Supported Emplyoment in general!
To ensure we match the right person to your business, our Job Coaches will complete a Job Analysis of the position you are recruiting for.
The Job Analysis allows us to understand everything about the role and how it fits in your business, so not only can we find the right person for you, we can understand how to best support them in their new role.
Job Matching and Recruiting
Once we know the role, we can match one of our jobseekers to you, by looking at how their skills match your needs, and how well they can integrate into your work environment.
We can set up a work trial which lets our jobseeker prove they can do the work and builds their confidence on the job before they move into paid employment.
Where one of our jobseekers may need specialist equipment in work, we can help you access funding to pay for equipment needed.
We can also advise on reasonable adjustments that can be made at little or no cost to overcome barriers to your new employee performing to their full potential.
In Work Support
When you hire with DurhamEnable, we continue to give support to both the employee and your business.
We can help your employee settle comfortably into their role and workplace, and help you access training, or funding needed for specialist equipment, so you can retain your new member of staff.
