The IEP is delighted to be sponsoring the 2017 ERSA Employability Awards with Empowering-Communities in the “Team of the Year” category
A new category for this year, the Team of the Year Award seeks to recognise a team (comprised of between three and 50 people) which has gone above and beyond what is required of them to ensure their organisation delivers the best possible services for jobseekers and/or those wanting to progress in work.
We are really pleased to be associated with this category as it is central to the IEP’s commitment to developing and supporting a thriving, energetic, creative frontline of skilled and knowledgeable professionals and it allows us to celebrate and champion the fantastic people who work in our sector.
Empowering-Communities, a not for profit social enterprise, are specialists in creating and delivering cloud-based IT solutions that allow teams to share information with their partners to provide holistic approaches to supporting people into employment and, as such, are a perfect fit to be partnering with us as sponsors.
The ERSA Awards are a wonderful opportunity to showcase the work you are doing in helping jobseekers in their journey towards, or into employment and we would encourage you to get your entry in as soon as possible. The deadline for submissions is 5pm on Friday 31st March – so don’t delay!
There is no minimum or maximum number of award categories that any one organisation can enter. The full Award categories are:
· Disability and Health Employment – sponsored by Pluss
· Youth Employment • Innovation – sponsored by entitledto
· Partner of the Year – sponsored by ICONI
· Adviser of the Year - sponsored by Alderwood

The list of winners will be published and promoted through a variety of media as well as through ERSA's, Empowering-Communities' and the IEP's own communication channels.
