Bristol City Council business news: Important info for businesses: Ways2Work and more

Ways2Work website relaunch

Established by Bristol City Council, the Ways2Work website looks to build a network of employment and training organisations to work together to fill skills shortages in Bristol, and get our residents into work.

Ways2Work works with partner organisations to ensure a joined up route to sustained careers for Bristol residents, as well as supporting our local employers to thrive.

The website has recently been relaunched, and it features a range of employment support, including a help directory, recruitment advice and COVID-19 support.
