Talent Match is a Big Lottery Funding initiative, which targets young people who are furthest from the job market in the Sheffield City Region.
Groundwork oversees Talent Match in Doncaster, Barnsley and Rotherham. Clients are aged between 18 and 24 and are currently not employed, in education or training.
Each client receives a dedicated coach who has a specific fund to enable barriers to be removed such as buying suits for interviews or train tickets to attend interviews. The coach provides support and counsels the young person to help them find work placements and volunteering opportunities.
