Work Programme provision - Thursday, 03 October 2013

The Work Programme is the Government's flagship Welfare to Work initiative to tackle long-term unemployment.  It has been designed to help and support people who have been out of work for long periods, find a job and then remain in work by offering continued support.

As an expert provider in the Welfare to Work sector locally, Phoenix Enterprises has been carefully selected by one of the Jobcentre Plus prime contractors, Serco, to deliver part of the programme across South Yorkshire on its behalf.

Phoenix offers a wide range of support on the Work Programme to help customers  find work and remain in employment for the long term.  These include:

·         A Personal Employment Adviser who offers individual one to one support

·         Advice on job search, CVs and interview techniques

·         Better off in work calculations

·         Use of computers, phones and the internet to look for work

·         Access to training courses, workshops and sessions relevant to job vacancies

·         Links to specialist provision

Work Programme customers who are referred to Phoenix are contacted and invited in to an initial Welcome Session where the programme, services and support available are explained.

The next appointment is with a Personal Employment Adviser who finds out more about the customer and creates a personal employment action plan which is reviewed and updated at regular intervals.

Support doesn’t stop when customers find work. Our In Work Support Team will stay in touch regularly and help deal with work related issues.

As well as helping customers find suitable and sustainable employment,  Phoenix  also offers  a no cost recruitment service to businesses, small or large.  This includes taking full details of a vacancy, pre-selection of candidates, help with applications and interviewing and advice on wage subsidies and/or funding for training.

Phoenix deliver the Work Programme for Serco in South Yorkshire on behalf of Jobcentre Plus to support the government’s plans to reduce unemployment across the UK. The programme is part-financed by the European Social Fund.
