Employability Manager, People Team

Leanne is based at Business in the Community’s BEAM Centre in the North West and has recently been assigned a Northern Ireland-wide role as Employability Manager. A large part of Leanne’s role involves identifying new stakeholder and partnership opportunities; in order to impact on unemployment rates and create a more inclusive society.

Leanne also leads on two key employability programmes for Business in the Community – STRIVE2Work Programme and Apprenticeships NI. STRIVE2Work focuses on tackling local unemployment by helping those who face barriers when trying to get back into the world of work. This programme focuses on helping participants gain the essential skills and tools required for them to enter the workforce and sustain their employment.

Leanne is very passionate about what she does and uses her creativity to engage the North West Employers Forum Board, which has 18 leading members organisations, to identify job opportunities for unemployed people.
