About the GEM Project 

Gloucestershire County Council and over 50 voluntary community social enterprise (VCSE), public and private sector partners from across the county joined together and won £3.2million funding to help the county’s most vulnerable adults into work, training or education; the project is jointly funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund.

This exciting project, known as The Gloucestershire GEM (Going the Extra Mile) Project, commenced in October 2016 and has engaged with over 1500 people across Gloucestershire.  It focusses on people who face challenges in getting into work, and supports them to move closer towards education, training, or employment.

The GEM Project is managed by Gloucestershire Gateway Trust (GGT) on behalf of Gloucestershire County Council. The project is being delivered by GEM Delivery Partners and, as one of those Partners, we now have an opportunity to recruit a Navigator Developer for the remainder of this project, which has been extended until the end of 2022.
