Our Employment, Skills and Enterprise (ES&E) business provides support to citizens, from helping the unemployed into sustainable work, to upskilling those with low or no vocational skills, so they can progress in work. We were therefore delighted to have been selected by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to deliver the Restart employability programme across two regions:

  • West Central, incorporating the Black Country, Coventry, Greater Birmingham and Solihull, The Marches and Worcestershire.
  • Wales
The Restart programme will help people who have been unemployed for between 12 and 18 months get back into work, including those whose prospects for securing employment have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Make a difference every day

Meaningful and vital work – With tens of thousands of people upskilled and trained every year, working within our ES&E business means having a direct and positive impact on their lives – and the job satisfaction that comes with it. 

A world of opportunity – We work with local government, central government, and businesses, on a variety of programmes. So as well as having scope to develop your career within ES&E, we can also offer pathways into other parts of our multi-national business.  

Great people – You’ll find yourself working with a variety of highly motivated, supportive and experienced colleagues, where no two days are the same.  

Our approach

Our Partnership team has already engaged a wide range of stakeholders and service providers in each region, working together to design a service which meets the local skills and labour demand. 

Continuous improvement is at the heart of what we do and through the development of a Centre of Excellence we will make best use of data and research to create evidence-based practice which drives positive outcomes. This knowledge base will contribute to the advancement of the sector and the quality of employability programmes for the long term unemployed.
