New business support team offers recruitment solutions

A new project is aiming to hep disadvantaged people in the region find training opportunities and jobs over the next three years.

Working Links, one of the Government’s Welfare to Work providers, has won an £8 million European Social Funded contract to help unemployed people in South Tyneside, County Durham and Wear Valley with support such as mentoring, training and job search activities.

To boost the initiative Working Links has recruited its own specialist employer team which will offer businesses a no cost recruitment option.

Unlike employment agencies, Working Links offers a fee-free service and aims to select candidates whose skills, attitudes and experiences match the vacancy.

Lisa Waller, Employer Solutions Team Manager at Working Links, said: “Our tailored approach to recruitment has benefited thousands of employers throughout the country. Our aim is to get people into jobs that last so we make sure our candidates are well matched to all vacancies.

“Advertising job vacancies can be expensive and time consuming and employers can now use us to find their ideal new recruit and the process will cost them nothing. We have an excellent track record of getting people into sustainable jobs because we only put forward clients that we believe are suitable. That means that employers benefit from job ready clients who are trained, enthusiastic and motivated. It’s a win/win situation!”

Any employers interested in seeing how Working Links can help them fill their vacancies should contact Lisa’s team on 0191 496 9800 or go to
