We can help you recruit and train new staff at no cost to you

Save time and money

It costs UK companies a massive £1,500 to £1,800 to fill a non-managerial vacancy.* But, thanks to government funding we can recruit people for your business for free – and also save you time and money on induction training.

Skills support for the unemployed

Our LED programme is designed to help people get the skills and experience they need to find their first job or return to work. It also helps employers like you find the right people to fill your vacancies. One of our Customer Engagement Consultants will work closely with you to understand your business, your people and what you’re looking for when recruiting. This helps us make sure we select the right candidates from our pool of individuals.

How it works?

We work with jobseekers to put together a personalised learning plan and support them with training to ensure they’re ready for work. Once we have a candidate who’s right for your role we’ll ensure they come to you fully motivated and ready to impress. We’ll support you from the interview stage through to induction, but our support doesn’t stop there – we’ll keep in touch with you and your new starter through those important first weeks, up to three months while they settle into your team.

Benefits for your organisation:

  • Free end to end recruitment tailored to your requirements
  • Save money on recruitment costs
  • Candidates with improved skills, qualities and attitudes for learning and work
  • Increased corporate social responsibility – you’ll be helping your local community
  • PR opportunities through the promotion of your involvement in the programme
