Meet the team

I’m really proud of supporting more than 150 customers into work over the last couple of years. Previously I worked solely in Bradford and supported customers to find work – with 87% of those I worked with securing a job. Prior to that I supported customers with substance misuse and housing needs to live independently.

Imran Hussain

Employment advisor, Leeds, Wakefield, Rotherham, Doncaster, Sheffield & Barnsley

I enjoy helping people reach their goals, and providing opportunities for people to fulfil their potential. I previously worked supporting teenagers and women within resettlement schemes to rebuild their lives. A big part of that was helping them gain employment and further educational opportunities.
