Work and Skills Leicestershire

The County Council is expanding its scheme to help residents who are seeking paid work or training for a new role.

Work and Skills Leicestershire has helped over 100 people since it was launched in June, initially as an online service. The project is now being rolled out at employment hubs in libraries across the county, and is open to everyone – from those who have never been employed to those who have lost their jobs due to the pandemic, been furloughed or who are at risk of redundancy. It will also help college leavers, graduates and agency staff on zero hour or temporary contracts. More »

Qualified personal advisors are on hand to offer impartial and professional advice to people from all backgrounds and provide one-to-one support. Everyone who signs up to the scheme has the opportunity to have a tailored work plan drawn up for them, including clear targets and steps to achieve their goal. Help is given with CV and letter writing skills, job searches, interview techniques and digital training, self-employment advice and business support.

Loughborough Library is among the libraries currently hosting Work and Skills Leicestershire. Sessions there are on Tuesdays between 10.00 a.m. and 12 noon.

Further information, including how to make appointments, is available on the County Council's website at or by calling 0800 988 0308.

Kickstart Placements

The County Council is encouraging companies to increase placements offered under the Government's Kickstart scheme from six to twelve months, after the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) pledged £500,000 to support the scheme.

The Council already has a similar plan for its own placements and has offered placements to fifteen young people so far, with further opportunities available in areas including highways services, waste operations, surveying, business support and administration.

The Government's scheme offers six-month work placements for those aged sixteen to twenty-four who receive Universal Credit. Organizations taking part will need to offer a further six-month work placement for a minimum of twenty-five hours per week to existing Kickstart participants, paying at least the minimum wage. The scheme will cover salary costs for up to thirty hours per week, employer National Insurance contributions and employer minimum automatic enrolment contributions.
