Are you looking for Work?

The Ready for Work scheme has been funded by Torbay Council and is in conjunction with TDA to support unemployed people from across Torbay back into sustained work.  If you’re out of work and want some help to move back into work please contact us on the form below or call 01392 873939 or you can email

The Ready for Work scheme incorporates six stages all designed to help you learn the necessary skills to move from unemployed into meaningful work.

Stages vary from one-to-one coaching sessions with our highly qualified coaches to group sessions looking at improving confidence, motivation and resilience. You’ll receive advice and guidance along the way, and be given an introduction to the industry which suits you best. You’ll have a chance to meet local employers with vacancies and with your coach sit down to match your preferences to available placements and jobs. Your coach will support you with all the necessary application details, including CV help and interview preparation. We’ll continue to support your transition into work and will continue to support you before and after gaining employment.

We believe every individual matters and hence we are passionate about increasing every individual’s chances of progressing to employment, further education or training and contributing to their local communities.


These are just some of those we’ve helped into Employment

Alex – “The support you gave me helped me develop as a person and gave me the confidence to ace all of my interviews and get this really exciting position. Thanks for all of the hard work you put in for individuals such as myself. It really is worth it, Motiv-8 has changed my life drastically for the better”.

Anita – “The moment I started the course I knew something good would come from it. The coach was very understanding and explained everything very well and clearly. They showed me a job opportunity. They helped with writing a CV and interview tips – two days later I got the job. I cannot thank them enough for their help”.
