The Ways2Work network was established by Bristol City Council to build a network of employers who we could work with to fill skills shortages in Bristol and get our residents into work.

We work with our partner organisations to ensure a joined up route to sustained careers for Bristol residents as well as supporting our local employers to thrive.

The Employment Support Team is here to help residents of Bristol find employment and improve their wider employment and career prospects.

We deliver and commission a wide range of employment support opportunities.

We organise job fairs, host networking meetings, and link together support agencies, colleges and employers in the area to help residents secure employment and employers to fill vacancies.

You can subscribe to regular email updates sharing news of opportunities, courses and jobs across the area.

We work with partners across Bristol and the West of England to provide training, job seeking and in-work support.  We work with employers and training providers to help to fill vacancies and address skills shortages.

Kickstart Scheme

Kickstart is a government initiative to provide work experience for young people aged 16-24 to help them with the work skills they need to move into the world of work. The placements are funded by the government so employers’ costs are covered. Participants will be provided with employment support which the ESL team can provide on behalf of the employers through Community Learning.

If you or your organisation could host a 6-month work experience placement for a young person, please see more details here: https://ways2work.org.uk/kickstart-bristol/

Young people will be able to apply for a placement through their DWP work coach once the placements have been set up.
