Way to Work: Information Session for employers

Way to Work is a new partnership between government and employers to get 500,000 jobseekers into work by the end of June 2022.

This partnership will help fill record numbers of vacancies, supporting job-ready people into the labour market and helping them progress into a career.

If you’re an employer who’s looking for a way to get the right person to help their business, Jobcentre Plus and Way to Work can help.

 

How Way to Work can help?

Way to Work is a national push to help even more people benefit from the record number of vacancies available in the jobs market, including many sectors vital to our national recovery.

There are thousands of people on Universal Credit who are actively looking to make a fresh start in work. This means there are many talented, work-ready people who are eager to take on your roles.

If you’re looking to fill a vacancy, Jobcentre Plus will offer you a named employer advisor in your local jobcentre, or a dedicated national account manager if you’re a national employer.

Way to Work is not a scheme which offers government funding like the Kickstart Scheme, however it will further support you with your ongoing recruitment. The DWP would like to discuss with you the range of recruitment services and advice and guidance that they can offer you.

The services offer could include:

  • providing a named employer adviser who will work with you to fill your vacancies
  • giving advice on job descriptions to make them attractive to candidates
  • working with you to streamline and speed up your recruitment process, and in return you will aim to offer jobs within 48 hours of interview
  • actively promoting your vacancies within local jobcentres
  • matching, pre-screening and booking guaranteed interviews if you agree our short listed candidates have priority access to your vacancies
  • providing access to Jobcentre Plus offices to conduct interviews
  • inviting you to attend local employer recruitment events and sector job fairs to promote your vacancies
  • providing networking opportunities to connect with other local businesses
  • post recruitment reviews, to discuss on-going support and future recruitment campaign

 

When is it?

Thursday 7 April 2022 10.30am – 12.00 pm
