Today marks the official opening of the sixth annual Employment Related Services Association (ERSA) Employability Awards sponsored by Clarion Futures. Entries are now open to individuals, organisations and businesses that help jobseekers in their journey into or towards employment.

The ERSA Employability Awards 2018 celebrate and champion best practice across the employment support sector, and seek to demonstrate the day-to-day hard work and dedication of those working to improve the lives of jobseekers, communities and the wider workforce. 

ERSA encourage applications from a range of organisations working with disadvantaged jobseekers, including charities, community groups, health services, housing associations, local authorities, training providers and employers. 

Kirsty McHugh, ERSA’s Chief Executive, said:

‘The ERSA Employability Awards recognises the unwavering dedication of employment support providers and businesses helping people into or towards employment. It presents an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of those on the frontline, who are working tirelessly to change people’s lives, and those of their families and communities around them’.  

The deadline for entry is 9 March. Finalists in each category will be announced at the ERSA AGM in April, with the awards presented at a special ceremony in London in the summer. More information and how to apply can be found here.
