Employment advice during COVID-19

Our employment team have created this information pack on employment advice, specifically for during COVID-19. 

This pack includes information on job retention, in-work support, advice for working from home, claiming benefits, finding new work and employment advice.

Finding and retaining paid work can play a significant part in your recovery from mental health condition. Benefits include the daily structure a job brings, an expansion of your social and support networks, an increase in income and a sense of an identity other than that of a mental health service user. 

Sometimes it can be difficult to look for employment, especially after having had a break from the work place. That is where our Employment Specialists can make a difference. 

Our service is for you if you:

  • Want to work and ready to start PAID work

  • Are ready to start job searching within 4 weeks of meeting with us
  • Intend to collaboratively work with us throughout your employment journey
  • Have been diagnosed with a mental health condition
  • Are being supported by a Clinician in Newham

We will help in the following ways:

  • Provide one to one support through your own allocated employment Specialist
  • Rapid job search and employer engagement
  • CV writing, interview preparations, skills development
  • Evaluate impact of job income on benefits
  • Support you whilst in employment including career development
