Recruit and Help Reduce Unemployment
Use our fully funded recruitment service
Connected community recruitment support
DWP commissions partners across the country to support jobseekers and employers to come together.
Each partner delivers a service that enables jobseekers to access sustainable work in a local area with an employer like you.
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, this site will enable you to connect with your local DWP partner to quickly fill vacancies.
They will help you identify jobseekers with suitable skills for your roles and prepare them to begin working for you.
By working together, we can help fulfil your business requirements and alleviate unemployment during this crisis.
How it works
Tell us your recruitment needs
Your local DWP partner will spend time understanding your organisation and the roles available. We can then design an effective and inclusive recruitment process bespoke for your recruitment needs.
Screening, interviewing and training
We will identify suitable candidates, with the right skills and interests, from jobseekers being supported by your local DWP partner. We can manage elements of the recruitment process, for example pre-screening, in order to save you time and resources. This includes supporting you to adapt you interview process or facilitating remote interviews to comply with social distancing restrictions..
Select your new employees
By recruiting using your local DWP partner you will gain access to a large pool of job-ready candidates. We can help with arranging start dates, background checks and other formalities required. The process can be tailored to ensure candidates are ready as soon as you need them.
Making work accessible
Support is available to employers recruiting someone with a health condition or disability. This includes information on health conditions, help with making reasonable adjustments, staff guidance and help using the Access to Work scheme, which can include financial support for reasonable adjustments.
The cost of everything we do is covered by government, as part of its support for jobseekers. The average cost of using a recruitment agency is £4,500. We are the same service and more… and it won’t cost you a penny!
