ERSA has nearly 200 members working to influence the policy environment and learn from each other to improve their own services to jobseekers. On these pages you will learn more about what we do and how to join ERSA.
ERSA has nearly 200 members ranging from large multinational service providers to small specialist charities. ERSA members come from the private, voluntary and public sectors and include both prime contractors and subcontractors of employment support services. Two thirds of its members are not for profit organisations.
Our members deliver a range of government funded and non government funded services designed to help people find and sustain employment. Funding is received from a range of sources, including the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), the Skills Funding Agency (SFA), the Department for Education (DfE), European Social Fund and local authorities. 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.
What our members say
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.
