Work Ready Employability Programme

Sub Menu

Work Ready is a new and innovative programme to help 60 people living in Causeway Coast and Glens Council area to find employment.


The Work Ready Programme can help you develop the employability skills needed to get a job and to kickstart or reboot your career.

We can help you find a job that is right for you and that works around your life. We will take everything into consideration and YOU decide what work opportunities you want to pursue. 

Training and support can be online as well as face-to-face.


We will help you get better at interviews, search for jobs and career opportunities, and sell yourself on application forms and on your CV.

We can also target employers directly and arrange job interviews and short work trials for you.

Aswell as the employability skills we can also help with all of the key skills and knowledge you need when starting in a job. This can include benefit considerations and ‘Better Off Calculations’, if required.


To be eligible for Work Ready you must be genuinely looking to find employment!

Participants must also:

  • Be resident in the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council area.
