Turn your business idea into a reality with the Regional Start
If you are unemployed and want to set up a business in Antrim but need support, then you should contact us with regards to the Steps to Work Self Employment option
Step One offers anyone who is nearly ready for work ongoing one-to-one support and guidance from an adviser that's aimed at helping you to find work as soon as possible. It also offers a range of short courses that can help you develop your confidence and motivation, improve your jobsearch skills and 'accredited' courses, that can help you find work.
Step Two offers a wider range of longer term support if you need more help to find work. Your adviser can put together a package of support to best meet your training and work experience needs and the needs of employers.
Step Two can last from three weeks to 52 weeks depending on what you are doing. While you are on Step Two you will receive £15.38 per week in addition to any other benefits you are entitled to.
