We know social recruitment works, and how to make it work for you.
We’re here to help you achieve your business goals while creating social value. Across 30+ years delivering training and employability support in the UK, we've learned that business growth means opportunities for all when recruiting in socially responsible ways. Your success and how you achieve it matters to us.
Our dedicated teams are driven by a social value mission. Between 2018 and 2022, we reached our stated goal of making a positive difference to the lives of 1 million people. We are doubling down on our efforts to enable as many employers as possible to discover the benefits of social recruitment. Every vacancy shared with us has the potential to add social value as the benefits of good employment ripple through communities.
To make this as simple as possible, core to our offer to employers is the Partner Services division, which features the Employer Relations, Social Recruitment, Wellbeing and LearningPlus teams.
Working in close collaboration with operational colleagues from every programme we deliver, Partner Services provide employers with a single point of contact for all of their social recruitment, staff training and Wellbeing requirements.
Every connection we make has the potential to improve the lives of learners and job seekers. In partnership with hundreds of employers and training providers, we prepare people who have struggled to overcome barriers to work. We train them in role specific skills, support them as they transition into the workplace - and, increasingly, find ways to help them sustain employment.
What’s more, our recruitment services are free. Not only can you create social value, but you can save time and money while doing it.
We navigate the ever-changing funding landscape, so you don’t have to. Circa £2.7 billion funding has been allocated to the Adult Education budget in England, and employers who want to train employees can draw on that investment on your staff member's behalf with PeoplePlus. If staff aren't eligible for this funding source, we can provide cost-effective online learning solutions with LearningPlus.
We know every employer is different, just as every candidate is different. The first thing we do is listen, then respond with a solution tailored to each of your recruitment and training needs.
