Employability Day

Tell us about your organisation for Employability Day!

ERSA is developing a provider platform for the employment support sector
Separate to the ERSA website and our new digital offer, this is a platform developed by the sector, for the sector, for jobseekers, for commissioners, for employers.

The Skills, Employment, Training and Help (AskSeth.org) Directory and Hub will provide visitors with information and contact details for relevant employability and skills organisations in their local area. 

We are starting with our core membership organisations and will be ready to showcase, soon. 

We know from research, organisations deliver far more than their websites promote. During the pandemic many have been forced to diversify and adapt their services coming up with new ways of reaching customers. Our members don’t always have the funding or capacity to keep websites updated – the ERSA Team know this all too well. Not everyone has a budget to market their services and this can be a real barrier for growth. Via ERSA forums and roundtables we hear first hand the important work being done across the UK, in communities, making a difference to those that need it the most.  Algorithms as we have seen in the press recently, can only tell us a version of the story. So, regardless of the size of your organisation, wherever you are delivering employability services, locally or across the four countries of the UK, online, or a combination of both – we need your help! 

Tell us where and what employment support you are delivering 
Please highlight your organisational specialisms so that your organisation is well represented on the site. The information provided can be amended and updated at any time, allowing for changes in service. ERSA may also use this information to update the ERSA membership directory, or to contact you with relevant opportunities that may be of interest. ERSA’s Privacy Policy can be found here.

If you have any questions, please email us at membership@ersa.org.uk. To make sure your organisation is included correctly when the site first goes live, please complete this quick form as soon as possible!

We are on track to launching the platform on 30 April as part of Employability Day.

Our main focus for the day will be promoting the incredible, diverse services and often life changing support our members offer to individuals, employers, governments, commissioners and communities. 

So this year, instead of telling us what you are planning for employability day, tell us about all the valuable services you provide everyday!

Thinking of joining ERSA?
Now is a great time to get exposure for your service offer. More information on becoming an ERSA member can be found here.

Let’s get started, it will only take around 10 minutes, one response per organisation please.

Option 1: Tell us about your organisation (surveymonkey)
Option 2: Tell us about your organisation (google form)

Please only complete one online option above, they both contain the same information!

Not the right person to complete this information for your organisation? Please could you forward to the most appropriate contact to make sure we have reached them. 

Interested in featuring in the platforms video library?

The power of the new platform is in communicating messages through expert video testimonies.

Would you, a colleague or customer like to share your knowledge and expertise, or perhaps your story, through a video Q&A format which will be hosted and accessed on the platform? We are looking for frontline advisers and practitioner’s top tips along with clients to tell their story! Interested? Please get in touch with the team for more details. 

Want to know more?
The ERSA Team delivered an information session in March, invites sent to all those that completed the information. In case you missed it, you can watch the session below for more information.

If your organisation has already submitted your entry, thank you – you will be invited in the near future to view the live demo and we will will soon start sharing all the ways in which you can support the platform and promote your offer. 

Thanks in advance!
