Employability in England
We deliver the Work Programme on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions, a programme designed to provide intensive and holistic support in all aspects of employability and welfare to work for the long-term unemployed.
Employability in Wales
Following several extensions to the contract, PeoplePlus Cymru are now in their 7th year of delivering the Work Programme and we have taken the top spots across the board in the RJF provider league tables, outperforming our competitors with similar caseloads by a considerable margin.
Employability in Scotland
We have been delivering the Fair Start Scotland contract since April 2018 in Glasgow and Highlands & Islands. Fair Start is a voluntary service where the focus is on helping the participant to work through a number of interactions that will develop their soft skills and overall employability. It offers tailored one to one support, then further support for up to 12 months after employment.
We have strong relationships with local and national employers who are interested in hiring good people and investing in their development and future. It’s these relationships that help us to secure the right jobs for our customers.
Across the UK our dedicated team of advisors, in-work support mentors, vacancy coordinators, employer relationship managers, enterprise advisors, skills tutors and more are working to reduce unemployment in Britain. Our national footprint means we have extensive relationships, knowledge and employment opportunities across the country that can open new opportunities for our customers.
