Talent Match

Talent Match Black Country is a voluntary engagement programme which will act as a platform to increase optimism, motivation and confidence, enabling you to grow and move forward. It is aimed at people aged 18-29 who have been out of work for a year.

Talent Match can particularly help young people if you:

  • Have been out of work for longer than a year.
  • Are not accessing any employment support.
  • Look after children or other family members.
  • Have a disability or mental health problem.
  • Are a care leaver.
  • Are a member of travelling families.
  • Are or have been homeless.
  • Are or have been engaged in substance misuse.
  • Currently or have been involved in crime.

Talent Match recognises your right to make choices. Engagement is completely voluntary. From the outset you will opt to engage and will be supported to make conscious informed decisions. You will be supported by a mentor who will provide solution focused support. The mentor will work with you to begin to identify barriers and start to look at strategies of how to address them and move forward.
