Way to Work

The UK Government has already invested over £400 billion into the Plan for Jobs – and it’s working.

We’ve helped tens of thousands of people retrain, build new skills and get back into work.

Way to Work is a national push to help even more people benefit from the record number of vacancies available in the jobs market, including many in sectors vital to national recovery.

At the same time as record vacancies, we have hundreds of thousands of people on Universal Credit who are actively looking to make a fresh start in work. This means there are many talented, work-ready people on our books who are eager to take on your roles.
This campaign will help people move swiftly back into the world of work and help you fill the roles you and our economy need too.

How Way to Work can help you

If you’re looking to fill a vacancy, we will offer you a named employer adviser in your local Jobcentre to support your journey with us, or a dedicated national account manager if you’re a national employer.

We have a range of recruitment services that can help you as an employer, including:
