Employment Hub County

VAL is working with Leicester Employment Hub to offer support to local employers and people in part of Leicestershire, with a focus on North West Leicestershire and Hinckley & Bosworth.

Leicester Employment Hub is a business support project for employers in Leicester, run by Leicester City Council. The project runs until 31st March 2025.

VAL has a project team dedicated to bridging the gap between local employers and local people seeking meaningful employment opportunities in North West Leicestershire and Hinckley & Bosworth.

Our mission is to foster connections with business networks and communities, create opportunities, and facilitate growth by linking talented individuals with valued organisations.

Building bridges between local employers and job seekers is crucial for fostering economic growth and creating a thriving community. By focusing on connecting talented individuals with organisations in North West Leicestershire and Hinckley & Bosworth, this project will play a significant role in addressing unemployment, improving local economies, and enhancing overall community well-being.

This project is funded by The UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF). The UKSPF provides £2.6 billion of new funding for local investment. It will help places right across the country deliver enhanced outcomes and recognises that even the most affluent parts of the UK contain pockets of deprivation and need support.
