The SHIRLIE Project is a supported employment agency. The project offers a flexible service which may include: life planning, vocational profiling using person-centered planning techniques, support with CV writing and interviews, approaching employers and negotiating terms and conditions on behalf of the clients, in-work support and aftercare, advice on benefits and financial matters. The service is available to anyone in Highland who feels they need support to gain or sustain employment.
