Shaw Trust is delighted to announce the launch of a Brand new portal for employers. The portal is a one-stop-shop enabling vacancies to be shared across DWP Partners and the Prime Provider network for Work and Health Programme.
The aim of the site is to provide employers with a simple and effective way to promote and fill their vacancies. The benefit to participants on the Work and Health Programme is they can find out about large numbers of vacancies across the country directly from their advisers – making sure they hear about the right roles for them.
Speaking about the new Portal, Jenny La Rocque, Shaw Trust’s National Employer Manager, comments:
“We are always looking for new ways to bring employers together with the right candidates. We know that being in work improves health and wellbeing, it provides an income and helps people to progress, however, it is so important people are matched with the right skills and support.
This new portal will ensure we have a bigger range of vacancies to promote and also ensures employers only have to share a vacancy once for it to be available to the whole prime provider network.
For Shaw Trust it is also the opportunity for us to build new relationships with employers, support their needs and encourage greater take up of Disability Confident accreditation.”
The Work and Health Programme supports people with health conditions, disabilities and anyone who has been out of work for more than two years to start working.
Why would employers get involved?
This national service gives peace of mind as vacancies once need to be shared once to reach all providers.
Local DWP partners and Work and Health Programme providers will work with employers to understand organisational need and the roles available before designing an effective and inclusive recruitment process.
- All candidates are screened for your roles and matched to employers.
- Employers access a wide and diverse talent pool and will be supported if recruiting someone with a health condition or disability.
- Recruitment is fully funded and free for employers
