We work with external partners, including local voluntary/community bodies and other statutory organisations to deliver a total package of employment support projects. These are both employer-led (helping with recruitment drives, co-ordinating/hosting open days/interviews) and client-led (a tailored approach according to individual needs and preferences).
Our menu of support will enable businesses to thrive ensuring future economic growth for the Warrington community as a whole. In addition to all residents, including those from priority groups and target areas, we aim to improve employability skills and ultimately help people to gain employment.
We negotiate with employers and support people throughout the recruitment process into job opportunities. The agreement covers job vacancies, guaranteed interviews, specific/bespoke training needs, skills update, apprenticeships, site visits, work placements/experience opportunities etc.
