SES is an employment focused programme that has been designed specifically to help people with disabilities to gain the skills and confidence needed to find and stay in work.

Our advisers, all of whom are able to use British Sign Language, have been chosen because of their experience, expertise and unique understanding of the problems that you face in looking, finding and staying in work.

We place you, our customer, at the centre of all we do. We take full account of your needs, and aspirations to create a completely individual plan that will take you from where you are now to where you want to be.
Your adviser will stay with you and work with you for up to 52 weeks so that in the end, your needs are fully met.

We have a range of options available to help you achieve your job goal:

  • Access to all JCP offices – appointments made in your local area to minimise travel
