Unemployment and redundancy support

How we can support you as an employer

We offer a diagnostic of your business’s staff needs and challenges and can offer a tailored package of support to suit the individual needs of your business.

This includes:

  • staff development – advising on the best course to meet your needs, which training providers offer the training and what funding options are available
  • apprenticeships – signposting to apprenticeship support officers, the most suitable training providers, sources of funding and even candidates if required
  • labour market information – access to online tools to establish job demand in the local area and help with benchmarking your current remuneration package with others competing for the same talent pool
  • recruitment support – pre-selection and screening activities of candidates from a variety of sources; support for candidates to review / complete a CV or application form; assessment of employability skills

These activities are funded as part of the National Careers Service and are offered at no cost to your business.
