Talent Match is a free service for motivated young people which is completely voluntary to attend. We believe that everyone should be encouraged to pursue their dreams and aspirations. If you want it badly enough, you should not let anything stand in your way.

We are here to support you on a one-to-one basis to help you achieve your goals. We tailor sessions to your needs and will work out an individual plan to help you to gain the skills and experience to move into work.

Examples of what we offer:

  • Support finding work experience
  • Regular support in the lead up to, and during work experience, training and employment
  • Assistance in gaining relevant training
  • Improve your skills and build your confidence
  • Guidance on job applications and CV writing
  • Help find the right job for you
  • Support for self-employment

We aim to be there every step of the way. We’re only ever a phone call away!

Talent Match is a £100 million Big Lottery Fund investment project to help long-term unemployed young people, aged 18 to 24, to gain employment across England.

Its aim is to ensure that the skills and experience of the voluntary and community sector can be used to help tackle youth unemployment and it has been designed by young people, for young people.

Talent Match, in partnership with voluntary, public and private sector organisations and young people panels, will deliver local employment solutions in response to local needs.

In particular, it will work closely with local businesses to develop opportunities for young people to access jobs.

Community Action Suffolk is working in partnership with The Prince’s Trust and other organisations in New Anglia to support unemployed young people into work through the Talent Match programme.

This programme has been fully funded by the Big Lottery Fund as part of Talent Match.
