Job Match – Help to find and stay in paid work
Helping disabled people to find the job for them, rather than just ‘A Job’
Looking for and trying to get a new job can be a bit overwhelming. Our Job Match Supported Employment Officers (SEOs) can help with your Job Search & Job Preparation – helping you to find and stay in paid work.
Located across N.Ireland the Job Match team can support you – from updating a CV and matching your skills to get a job, completing a job application and preparing for interview to progress into paid work – to helping you explore a new business idea and support you on the road to self-employment.
The team will work with both you and local employers in your local area to get the right job for you.

Our support doesn’t stop when you leave the Job Match programme:
Our team’s support doesn’t stop when a participant leaves Job Match; we provide an additional period of pastoral support to help them to sustain their job. As a result, we continue to grow the numbers of people in sustained jobs six months after leaving Job Match – currently nearly 50% (August 2021).
