What are we looking for?

Futures has been successful in winning contracts as part of the supply chain to support the delivery of the Restart Programme. Restart is the DWP’s major new welfare-to-work programme to provide employability support to the long-term unemployed people to help them into work.

The purpose of this role is to achieve recruitment targets by matching work ready participants to suitable job opportunities.  Please note that this opportunity is a 2 years fixed term contract, but there is potential for a possible extension.

You are required to work with autonomy and high levels of personal motivation with the proven ability to meet targets. You will be working in collaboration with the advisor and account management teams to support the recruitment of individuals to fill job vacancies.

Applicants should have a genuine interest in supporting individuals to find suitable employment opportunities and should be comfortable talking to participants on the phone. Experience in the welfare to work sector is not essential.  

If you are looking for a role where you can make a difference and are an organised individual who likes talking to people, this could be an excellent opportunity for you.
