Job coaches

West Mercia Homes  is a proud member of the Fusion Group; a collaboration of local Housing Associations and Community Service Providers that has secured ESF and Big Lottery Funding to deliver Employment Support across Worcestershire.

West Mercia Homes now has a Fusion Job Coach who is available to work with individuals on a one-to-one basis across Worcestershire through the Building Better Opportunities Programme.

Each participant has a personal package of support based on their own individual circumstances and needs. By recognising and building on their strengths and abilities, participants will gain the confidence they need to enter the world of employment, training or job searching.

Participants receive help with:  CV Writing; finding vacancies; completing applications; interview techniques; confidence building and much more. Our Job Coach works within the West Mercia Homes Tenancy Sustainment Team, which can also support customers with Welfare benefits, money and energy advice. This provides a total support package, so when a participant finds the job they want, they can accept it and move forward with confidence.

Funding for our job coaches

Building Better Opportunities is funded through the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.
