Employability Durham


If you're aged 25 and over, unemployed and live in County Durham, we could offer you help and support to get back into work or start your own business.

Looking for work can be difficult, especially if you have been out of work for a while. We provide information, advice and support to help you at every stage of your journey. If you're not yet ready to find a job, we can help you so that when the time comes, you're ready, prepared and confident. If you're newly unemployed and don't know where to start, would like a change of direction or want to secure a new job as soon as possible, we can help.
