About ERSA

About the industry

ERSA is the national membership body campaigning for high quality services for the UK's jobseekers and low earners. Nearly 80 percent of our members are not for profit. We have charities, local authorities, housing associations, social enterprises, funding bodies and private sector organisations in membership. Our members are a social force for good. We exist to serve the sector and, through the sector, those who use their services. We strive to ensure that the sector has the knowledge, networks and voice to deliver great services to jobseekers and those looking to progress in work.
