Employment Access Team: support for employers and jobseekers

The Employment Access Team provides a fully funded recruitment service for Businesses and Birmingham residents.

What we do?

  • Work with the Council’s corporate suppliers and partners to help ensure local people benefit from the jobs, training, and work experience opportunities created
  • Network with employers to capture jobs, apprenticeships, and work experience opportunities for unemployed Birmingham residents
  • Provide a free brokerage service
  • Work with colleges and training providers to develop and promote bespoke training courses as a route into opportunities


We work with employers to understand their training and recruitment needs. Following this, we devise a package of bespoke support for each employer to fulfil opportunities.

This could include:

  • Vacancy promotion
  • Applicant screening support
  • Introduction to local skills providers


We work with unemployed residents of Birmingham to ensure they are aware of and have access to:

  • Local employment opportunities including jobs, apprenticeships, and work experience
  • Relevant training and development pathways
  • Referral to employability services

The Employment Access Team is also currently supporting delivering to European Union-funded project Youth Promise Plus, helping to connect local unemployed citizens aged 16-29 into employment.

To provide the best services we welcome any feedback, including comments, compliments, and complaints.
