Gateshead Council has a wealth of experience helping local people get back into the jobs market after periods out of work. Since 1997 the Council’s Job Linkage Team has helped over 14,000 residents into employment.

We offer one to one information, advice and guidance for unemployed or unwaged Gateshead residents with jobsearch support to help residents find work.

We work with a range of employers who are looking for employees and can link you to these vacancies. We also provide grants to help you train and back to work grants for travel, clothing, childcare costs etc. (Subject to funding being available)

If you are a Gateshead resident who is looking for work and you need some help come and see us in the Civic Centre Monday to Friday 12.30-4.30pm or call us on 0191 477 3747 (24 hour answerphone)
