Integrated Employability Service

Integrated Employability Service and Jobs Strategy partners

The Integrated Employability Service (IES) ensures Job Strategy partners work together.

Priority areas are

  • young people aged 14-19 years
  • in-work poverty and low pay
  • early intervention for short term unemployed
  • support for regeneration and vulnerable individuals. 

The IES model is built around a sustainable employability model that responds to labour market needs. It drives continuous improvement and delivers best value on investment.  

The aims are to

  • improve the clarity, quality and effectiveness of the service
  • make clear the roles and responsibilities of partners and stakeholders
  • strengthen economic actions within the city's Community Planning structure. 

The local IES employability hubs are central to the strategic skills pipeline. They offer a range of employability services across the city. They help ensure anyone in Edinburgh can access a service that suits their needs.
