Employment Incentive

Financial support to train employees

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.
