The LEMIS+ Project is designed to target and support those most removed from the labour market and support them back into employment. It is an all-age client-centred service which works with people from all social and economic backgrounds.
LEMIS+ is a voluntary programme providing 1-2-1 support for individuals either in EBM or in Outreach centres across East Belfast.
These highly skilled LEMIS+ Project Mentors offer careers, education and training advice/guidance and give people the support they need to progress into employment. We work with people across East Belfast. Our skilled mentors offer people of all ages and backgrounds free one-to-one tailored support with:
Creating a CV
Having an effective CV is one way to ensure a prospective employer notices a potential client. We offer support to help people construct a good CV with appropriate content and layout to best display their skills.
We have access to many lists of job vacancies and can help match skills and experience to the relevant positions.
Successful completion of an application form need not be a barrier to winning a job. Our experienced mentors can help clients in this area.
Being properly prepared for an interview is essential for jobseekers. Our highly skilled mentors help clients prepare and get much needed interview practice.
Participants on the LEMIS+ Project are able to undertake a range of training in areas such as ICT, childcare, language for work (a special course designed for foreign national clients who need help with their English in the workplace), customer care health and social care, customer service and much more.
This training offers LEMIS+ clients the opportunity to gain new skills, especially those seeking to re-skill or those who left education a long time ago without any formal qualifications.
Also available is a range of pre-employment courses such as food hygiene, CSR training, etc. This is offered to LEMIS+ clients where a clear employability outcome will be achieved as a result of undertaking the training.
The LEMIS+ Project has its own dedicated Employer Liaison Service (ELS) which is works with employers right across the city to secure job opportunities for people on the project.

The LEMIS+ project has been part-financed by the European Union (EU) through the NI European Social Fund (ESF) programme. This programme aims to combat poverty and enhance social inclusion by reducing economic inactivity, and to increase the skills base of those currently in work and future potential participants in the workforce.
