About Walsall Works

Who we are

Walsall Works is a Walsall Council programme designed to support local people with finding jobs, apprenticeships and training.

Whatever stage you are at in your career, our aim is to help you access training that will increase your skills and give you access to local jobs created by local employers. Our programme supports Walsall residents of any age, so contact us to find out how we can help.

What we do

When you register with Walsall Works, you will receive ongoing support from our Employment and Skills team, who have the knowledge and expertise to improve your employability and find the right job opportunities for you.

We will keep you updated with current jobs, apprenticeships and training courses via email and on this site, so get in touch if you see something you like.

If you are struggling to secure work or if you are not sure how to get started, you can access our support sessions in areas such as application support and promoting opportunities. Information about these will be listed in the training section.

Apprenticeship grant

Walsall Works is aimed at helping eligible employers to offer employment through an apprenticeship programme, by providing them a financial incentive payment towards wages to assist employers in recruiting apprentices.

Since 2012, Walsall Works have provided over 650 grants to Walsall businesses taking on local young people.

These financial incentives are to unlock new apprenticeships in businesses with fewer than 250 staff that work in our ‘growth sectors’ of Manufacturing and Engineering, Construction and Environmental Technologies, Financial and Business Services, Creative and Digital Services, Health and Social Care and Logistics.
