ERSA – the representative body for the employment support sector – are planning the fourth annual UK Employability Day taking place on Friday 28 June.
Employability Day is an opportunity to demonstrate the importance of employment support at the frontline. Thousands of charities, businesses and public bodies across the country will host events and promote their achievements on social media and to local press.
It’s a fantastic opportunity to highlight your work and ERSA would be delighted if you would join the celebrations. Here are a few examples of how to take part (although any ideas are very welcome):
- Host a visit from local stakeholders, such as MPs, councillors or employers, to show them what you do.
- Celebrate your achievements over the last year with a party for jobseekers and staff which you can promote online and share with local press.
- Help support the day on social media using the hashtag #EmpDay19.
ERSA will be putting together a toolkit (including template invitation letters, draft press releases, and branding material) which will be available online at www.ersa.org.uk/empday. You can already download the quick guide to Employability Day here.
