iWork

The iWork employment services offers 1-2-1 tailored coaching and mentoring support to get unemployed Islington residents into jobs they want to do. It has a holistic approach, looking at the person's strengths and interests. A coach can work with a client for as long as needed in order to get them into work. Coaches can also signpost to other support services as well as finding voluntary work, work shadowing, apprenticeship and work placement opportunities or training.

When iWork caseloads are full we link residents who are looking for support with one of the 70+ Employment Support Organisations operating in the borough.
