ERSA has over 200 members ranging from large multinational service providers to small specialist charities. ERSA members span the private, voluntary and public sectors, with two thirds of its membership not for profit.
ERSA's members' employment services are funded from a wide range of sources, including central government contracts, including those from the Department for Work and Pensions and Business, Innovation and Skills. In addition, ERSA members' services are funded by devolved administrations, local government contracts, corporate finance, European funds, social finance or their own core funding. Many ERSA members specialise in specific areas of employment support, such as disability and health services, youth employment or offender related services. Other providers deliver a broader range of services to jobseekers.
ERSA works hard to ensure it is responding to its members’ needs. ERSA regularly surveys its members for ensure they are satisfied with the service ERSA offers and ask what activities they want ERSA to focus on in the coming year. In its last membership survey:
• 96% of members said their experience of ERSA membership was good or very good
• 96% would recommend ERSA, many have already done so
• 92% value the regular information flows from ERSA
Ensuring ERSA stays representative of the sector is vital. Our members put jobseekers at the heart of what they do. If you are interested in becoming part of a movement of organisations wanting to influence the policy environment and improve their own services to ensure jobseekers get the best possible support to gain and sustain employment, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
