Jobcentre Plus employment schemes can help you to recruit people as well as creating opportunities for people looking for work.
This is run by private and voluntary organisations called ‘providers’. They’re paid to help long-term unemployed people into work.
Your local provider could help with your recruitment needs and help you get the right person for the job.
These provide unemployed people with a place to meet, exchange skills and experiences and get support to help them in their return to work.

This scheme encourages unemployed people to take up volunteering to help improve their skills and job prospects. Jobcentre Plus can help you to find a volunteering opportunity.
