Randstad Worker Support helps long-term disabled job seekers find work
 
Randstad Worker Support is running a six-week work club for disabled job seekers in Manchester to help them find work.
 
In conjunction with the local job centre, the work club has been designed to support long-term disabled job seekers with autism, anxiety, depression and mental impairments.  The weekly work club sessions provide support and advice on CV writing, completing applications, job searching, interview techniques and confidence building, delivered through a combination of practical workshops, group discussions and employer presentations.
 
As the market leader in the UK, Randstad Worker Support and Randstad Student Support work in partnership with universities, colleges, workplaces and job centres to provide disability support workers to people who require supp ort with undertaking their study and work.  The company currently supports over 13,000 people with disabilities across the UK.
 
Randstad Worker Support operations director, Victoria Short, comments: "We feel passionately about our work club as it is important for organisations  to have an inclusive approach to their recruitment.  By supporting jobseekers in overcoming any barriers they have to work, and enhancing their job searching skills, we hope to give them the best possible opportunities of get ting into and sustaining employment."
 
Feedback from the work club to date indicates that participants are finding  the sessions helpful, encouraging and informative.
 
Randstad Worker Support is planning to use this work club format as part of  the delivery model it will be offering to support the Government's upcoming Work Programme, due to start in June 2011.
