Back to work scheme
If you get in touch with us after losing your job, there are a number of ways LionHeart can support you and your family, and ease the burden of what can be a very difficult time.
Our support officers can provide the confidential, practical support you need to help get things back on track.
We’re also able to offer those people who have been out of work for more than three months professional help to get back on the career ladder through our Back to Work scheme.
We have a range of external partners we can refer you to depending on your individual circumstances. Our support officers will be able to talk to you to determine which will suit you best.
Our specialist employment partners can provide:
- Personalised career coaching sessions with a specialist, which might include developing your CV, practising interview techniques, effective job search methods, creating a digital profile and using social media, or help with evaluating career options
- A full three-month programme of support aimed at getting you back in the workplace
- Unlimited access to online resources, including CV building, online workshops, preparing for interviews and networking tips
- Tailored modular support if you just need help with one or two areas, such as CV writing or interview techniques
Feedback from the people we have supported through our employment specialist partners so far has been fantastic, and we are confident that it gives people struggling to re-enter the job market more confidence and the skills to compete in the modern arena.
In order to qualify for our Back to Work scheme you must have been out of work for three months or in receipt of certain benefits.
What you said about our employment support...
I really did not know which way to turn and I very much appreciated... [the] sound counselling at a time when my self-esteem was at an all time low, which convinced me that there was light at the end of the tunnel! It helped me find the confidence to move forward. The sessions were extremely useful.
