Stafforce partners with DWP to support jobseekers back into work
Stafforce and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) have partnered to support a joint ambition to provide jobseekers with the help they need to successfully and sustainably return to the workplace.
With the latest Office for National Statistics figures showing that unemployment has fallen again and the claimant rate is at its lowest in over 40 years, the organisations say the partnership recognises a commitment to encouraging claimants to confidently re-enter work.
The National Framework Agreement allows Stafforce branches to partner with local Jobcentres to offer work experience opportunities to jobseeker claimants, with the aim to help them learn essential workplace skills, and to transition from benefits into work successfully, Stafforce says.
Stafforce director, Tony Boorman, commented, “We are committed to working with the DWP to build a win-win partnership. The national agreement demonstrates our commitment to working fourfold with the DWP, JCP, Jobseekers and our portfolio of clients, with the ultimate aim of providing sustainable employment opportunities that will benefit all.”
