How it works

Our recruitment officers work with you to fulfil your recruitment needs.

We can help you to fill one vacancy or we can help you to fill many vacancies within your company. Tell us how to help you and we will do all we can to meet your requirements.

Work placements

Our employment schemes, which consist of industry led training and a work placement, enable candidates to gain invaluable experience in a wide range of employment sectors.

As an employer the benefits of offering a placement include:

  • the opportunity to ‘trial’ a possible future employee without the costs of advertising and recruitment
  • additional help and support for your business
  • the chance to give something back to the community and help the local employment market
  • the provision of invaluable skills and work experience to a placement candidate

Although no employer is obliged to offer a job, many candidates are offered employment directly from their placement.

Your Back to Work recruitment officer will tell you which scheme will best suit your needs.
