• The iWork employment service 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 they link residents who are looking for support with one of the 70+ Employment Support Organisations operating in the borough.
