Elizabeth Porter, Assistant Director/Employer Engagement Lead

I joined Bridges Programmes in May 2007 having previously worked for several years as an Employment Development worker with a large learning disability organisation where I ran several employability programmes such as Training for Work, Get Ready for Work, Work Preparation and Supported Employment. Before that, I worked as a recruitment consultant for a large industrial recruitment company specialising in high volume industrial recruitment before being promoted to branch manager.
My role within Bridges is Assistant Director and Employer Engagement lead and over the years I have set up long term partnerships with employers from a variety of sectors including Social Care, Hospitality, Private Business and the Public Sector. I am involved with developing and delivering a range of training programmes in partnership with employers which leads to clients getting the practical experience they need to gain employment in the UK.
My day to day role is to support the casework team, engage with employers and look for suitable training and employment opportunities for clients.
What I enjoy most about Bridges Programmes are fantastic and motivated clients who come from all over the world and from all different backgrounds that I get to meet and help them on their journey towards employment and inclusion. 
I am also lucky to work with a great team of knowledgeable, dedicated employability specialists who go over and above their job role to do the best job they can for our clients and often their families. They are hardworking but also lots of fun and I am lucky to be part of such a great team.
