Ensuring ERSA stays representative of the sector is vital. Our members put jobseekers and low earners 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 current and future jobseekers plus low earners get the best possible support to gain and sustain employment, contact  [email protected] to learn more.
