How our job coaches are funded
Building Better Opportunities is funded through the European Social Fund and The National Community Fund.
Fortis Living 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 in Worcestershire.
Fortis Living now has two Fusion Job Coaches who are available to work with individuals on a one-to-one basis across Worcestershire through the Building Better Opportunities Programmes.
With support from a dedicated Job Coach each participant has a personal package of support based on their own individual circumstances and needs. By recognising and building on strengths and abilities participants will gain confidence to enter the world of employment.
Participants receive help with all aspects of job search; CV Writing, finding vacancies, completing applications, interview techniques, confidence building and much, much more. As well as this we understand that finding work is also about feeling confident with other aspects of your life. Our Job Coaches work within the Fortis Debt Prevention Team which also supports people with benefit, money and energy advice. This means we can offer a total support package so that when you find the job you want you are in a position to accept it and move forward with confidence.
Our Job Coaches are already achieving great results with participants who have found work, completed training courses and made great strides towards rewarding, permanent employment.
