How Jobcentre Plus can help your business.

Jobcentre Plus offers a range of services to help you grow and develop your business.

Our UK network of professional Employer Advisers can help by:

  • working with you to design a personalised recruitment plan for your business, and
  • provide access to Jobcentre Plus office facilities that you can use for recruitment

Your local Employer Adviser can also help with pre-employment training and advice – covering initiatives like work trials, sector specific training and voluntary work experience.

They can also help with:

  • Universal Credit – how it can help your business and employees
  • Access to Work – which provides advice, help at work and funding for people who have a health condition or disability, and the
  • Disability Confident scheme – which supports employers to make the most of the talents of disabled people

You can also get help with:

  • job advertisements – promoting and managing your vacancies through our online Find a job service
  • job applications – where we will assist with the sifting and matching of candidates to your vacancies
  • funding – exploring potential financial assistance via our partnership network, and
  • visits to your business – to understand your company and develop a tailored recruitment package for you

This extra support is available where you are committed to creating opportunities for people who need more help to succeed in the labour market.

Jobcentre Plus has a range of facilities that you can use for recruitment. For example, a typical office has:

  • an IT suite – with computers and internet access
  • a group session area – for meetings and training events, and
  • an interview area – with rooms and informal discussion spaces

The facilities available at each Jobcentre Plus Office will vary. You just need to get in touch, to confirm what is available and how to make a booking.
