Lionne Whitfield has been named as a finalist for the ERSA Employability Awards 2017, sponsored by Clarion Housing Group, in the Adviser of the Year Award category.
The Employability Awards, now in their fourth year, celebrate and champion best practice from across the employment support sector. This year the awards were judged by Nick Butler from the Department for Work and Pensions; Andy Cook from the Centre for Social Justice; and Christine Chang from Big Society Capital.
Lionne was nominated for the Adviser of the Year Award, sponsored by The Clarion Group, recognising an employment adviser who has demonstrated exceptional commitment in a frontline role.
Lionne joined Hexagon in January 2016 as an Employment Support Adviser to provide employability support for unemployed people. During this time she has transformed the delivery of the Employment and Skills programme which is part of the Love London Working programme, funded through the European Innovation and Social Fund.
The winners of the Employability Awards will be announced at a special ceremony held in London on 29 June attended by the Minister for Employment.
