ECL and Essex County Council are collaborating on a new ground-breaking project helping adults with learning disabilities and autism to achieve aspirations of paid employment.
Who we are and what we do
ECL was established in 2009 as the UK’s first Local Authority Trading Company. Our company status means that we are a private limited company, wholly owned by Essex County Council.
Over the last 10 years, we have grown to offer a wide range of specialist services. We are now the largest care provider in Essex providing high quality care and support to older people, adults receiving reablement services, adults with learning disabilities and people with sensory impairment.
At ECL, we strive to encourage employers both regionally and nationally to realise the benefits of becoming an Inclusive Employer.
What is it? Who is it for?
ECL’s specialist Inclusive Employment team strive to open-up paid employment opportunities for candidates with learning disabilities and autism. Our team place talented individuals in roles to enable them to improve their skill set and achieve their goals of becoming more independent.
We support our candidates during the interview process, induction period, provide on-the-job coaching and vocational training at no cost to our employers.
