Employment Service

Many people with a disability need support to help them look for a job or to access employment and education opportunities, so our service has been specifically designed to meet their needs. As well, employers can lack confidence in employing people with a disability, with many not aware of the Government's Access to Work scheme, which can help meet the cost of reasonable adjustments in the workplace.

Our employment service supports deaf and hard of hearing people who are looking for a job, or want to move into education or training. We can deliver the training in different ways including British Sign Language.

Looking for a job
If you are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing, the employment team can provide you with support to access further education, employment and training.

We offer a full employment support service through one to one appointments or group activities and training:

  • Information, advice and guidance
  • Support with accessing further education, training or volunteer opportunities
  • Career Planning
    Completing a CV and application forms
  • Confidence building
  • Job search and job club
  • Interview preparation
  • Coaching and mentoring
  • Improving your English, writing, IT and Math skills
  • British Sign Language (BSL) for international learners

PURE Project
BID Services are also delivering a project called PURE in partnership with Birmingham City Council. BID's PURE Employment Service provides specialist employment, education or training support for Birmingham residents who are over the age of 25 who are not currently in education, employment or training.
