What is Employability Orkney?

In order to develop and promote employability amongst those furthest from the labour market in Orkney, Employability Orkney was established as an independent organisation in November 2005.
The remit was to focus on the employment barriers being faced by socially excluded people in the Orkney community.
This broad remit includes individuals with a learning disability, physical disability, mental health needs, alcohol/substance misuse needs, ex-offenders, care leavers, long-term unemployed and anyone who experiences a disadvantage in entering the labour market.
Employability Orkney was originally launched and funded by a partnership between Orkney Islands Council, HIE Orkney, Jobcentre Plus and Orkney Disability Forum.
