Employment and Support

The County Council's staff are just like the communities we serve: people from many backgrounds, each with our own unique talents to contribute. We have three staff networks with members who seek to:

  • Make a positive difference in the workplace.
  • Meet like-minded colleagues.
  • Offer support to each other at work.
For more information about our staff network groups, please follow the relevant links below:

Disability Work Placement Schemes

The Council recognises that there are many disabled people living in Worcestershire who would like to work but need support in getting a job, so we have set up work experience programmes for disabled job-seekers.
The organisations listed below can all help their clients to apply to join the programme. These voluntary placements are part-time and can last for up to twelve weeks.

The County Council currently offers voluntary work experience placements of up to 12 weeks for disabled people preparing to become work-ready.  We can also offer longer term paid training placements for work-ready disabled job seekers.  Job-seekers on this programme can work up to 16 hours a week for up to a year; without loss of specified benefit entitlement during this time.

If you are interested in the work experience programme or the Paid Training Placement programme then please contact Sandy Bannister, Corporate Equality & Diversity Programme Manager on 01905 766225.
