Borders Employability Advice and Mentoring (BEAM) Project

If you, or anyone aged over 16 in your household, are currently unemployed and would welcome some support to get back into work, we could help.

We’ve partnered up with the Wise Group and the other housing associations in the Borders to offer a new service to our tenants.
The Borders Employment Advice and Mentoring (BEAM) project aims to tackle barriers to employment for 100 tenants or household members of Berwickshire, Eildon, Scottish Borders and Waverley Housing Associations.

Here’s a leaflet with some more information: Wise Group – BEAM leaflet

BEAM mentors can help you overcome obstacles such as lack of work experience or CV, help you to develop interview skills, work on your confidence issues, and much more!

Mentors will also help participants to access digital search tools and e-learning courses.

If you are interested, please contact your Housing Officer on 03000 200 217 or email
