Community Support and Employment Service

The Community Support and Employment Service is a new FREE service from Braintree District Council and the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP).

The service offers people living in the Braintree District help with employment such as help finding a job, accessing training and help with any personal issues that are making it difficult to find employment.

The service is open to people in the district who are unemployed, in fear of unemployment or those not engaged in the job market due to personal issues.
