The Centre For Full Employment are dedicated to delivering their sercvices on behalf of their trustees.

European Social Fund

The European Social Fund (ESF) was set up to improve employment opportunities in the European Union. The ESF aims to help people improve their skills and job prospects, enabling them to enter employment, education or training.

As one of the EU’s Structural Funds, The European Social Fund supports the EU’s goal of increasing employment by giving unemployed and disadvantaged people the training and support they need to enter jobs. The ESF also helps to equip the workforce with the skills needed by business in a competitive global economy.

The ESF supports the Department for Work and Pensions, providing employment related support for troubled families, and voluntary places on the Work Programme for people on incapacity benefit and income support.

Jobcentre Plus

CFFE deliver services on behalf of the Jobcentre Plus, a government-funded employment agency and social security office found in most cities, including Sheffield. Jobcentre Plus is a part of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) helping people find employment, and providing resources to help job seekers to find work through Jobpoints (touch-screen computer terminals), Jobseeker Direct (telephone service) and the Jobcentre Plus website.

Jobcentre Plus offer information about training opportunities for individuals who have been unemployed for a long period of time. They also process benefit claims such as Income Support, Incapacity Benefit, and Jobseeker’s Allowance.

Jobcentre Plus primarily help those who are unemployed and claiming benefits, though anyone can search for a job using their resources.
