Merthyr Tydfil Employment Liasion Partnership

The main aim of the group is to act as the driving force behind all employment liaison and to oversee the development and delivery of employment liaison within the County Borough of Merthyr Tydfil. The partnership consists of public, private and third sector organisations.

 The Employer Liaison Partnership was formed during January 2008 as a sub group of Merthyr Works.  During September 2009 Merthyr Works disbanded therefore the Employment Liaison Partnership became a sub group of The Worklessness Steering Group.  October 2008, partners met to start an exercise of mapping provision available within the borough to help the citizens of Merthyr Tydfil gain opportunities within Education, Training and Employment.

This information was then populated into a web based directory – a central point of resource to help practitioners support their clients and sign post to the relevant agencies.

The website has been further developed with the intent that it becomes the central point for practitioners, employers and individuals.  The information will range from a Partner Directory, Employer Links and Profiles, and employment related activities such as workclubs, vacancies and training available.
