Professionalism in our sector
As the employability and skills arenas in which we work continue to grow, change, and make tougher demands on our services, it is increasingly important that a collective provider voice is represented to those who influence or make the decisions which impact on our ambition to achieve change and improve people’s lives. We are selective in terms of our involvement with trade related bodies, but know that the benefits of being affiliated with the right organisation can play a significant part in helping us to release the potential of the people we work with.
esg. is a member of the Employment Related Services Association (ERSA), the representative body for the employment related services sector. We contribute to, and benefit from, their policy, research, and lobbying activity on behalf of the welfare to work industry, representing providers from across the public, private and third sectors. Collectively, ERSA members produce a turnover from employment related services of some £700m, or two thirds of the Department for Work and Pensions annual spend.
esg. is a member of the Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP), an organisation sharing the same vision as we do.
