WELFARE TO WORK PROJECTS: We have over 20 years’ experience of welfare to work training, employment and enterprise support. Over the years we have supported over 5000 people to change their lives for the better. We deliver a range of welfare to work projects aimed at both the long and short term unemployed. We have dedicated teams of Employment Advisors throughout our London offices who work intensely with customers to get them back on track towards career development through 1-2-1 support, personal development, employability skills, vocational training, work placements and volunteering, and of course, ultimately sustainable employment.

We know there are many things that mean the jobs market can be difficult for some people. You may have been out of work caring for a child or relative. You may have a health condition or disability. Or you may not have been employed for a while and don’t have the confidence or skills to look for work again. Whatever the circumstances, we will find ways to help, support and make employment work for you.
