Recruitment Support

We work with a huge pool of enthusiastic, talented and ‘job-ready’ individuals. Working in partnership with businesses, with support and advice that is all part of the fully-funded service, we aim to match the right person with the right employer.

We also offer solutions for temporary vacancies, through our recruitment agency Aspire.

Permanent Staff Recruitment

Our recruitment service is designed to save you time as well as money.  Because of the way we’re funded, we can offer a comprehensive no-cost recruitment package that includes:

  • Vacancy profiling and generating job descriptions and person specifications
  • Salary benchmarking
  • Pitching vacancies at the right level to ensure a strong flow of candidates
  • Promoting your company’s vacancies to a wide labour pool using our shop front offices and websites
  • Candidate screening, so that you only interview people with the appropriate skills, experience and, where applicable, qualifications.
  • We can also help you fill multiple vacancies (minimum of 5) in the same occupation by designing a bespoke, pre-employment training course focusing on the specific skills you require. Only those candidates who successfully complete the course will be put forward for interview.

  • We can help you to manage staff expectations and support during the redundancy process
  • Support with staff careers advice and guidance 
  • CV building and interview techniques for staff
  • Sourcing new job opportunities for staff 
  • Training and accreditation in high demand skill areas
  • Advice on starting a new business
