What We Do

Are you an employer with suitable vacancies?

Works Better is a new ‘into-work’ programme that provides employers and organisations with motivated, committed and loyal staff.

Across our previous programmes we have worked with over 500 companies across Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield and supported them with a package of support and one-to-one mentoring that has resulted in over 1000 vacancies filled. (With over 89% still in post after six months!)

The people we work with know that Works Better! We work with a diverse range of people, take their energy & enthusiasm, add a programme of support & one-to-one mentoring, to create a candidate that will be an asset to any company in the area. In connecting them to suitable vacancies through our ‘bespoke matching service’ we ensure they are a right fit - first time for your organisation.

We are looking to work with local companies who can see the benefit of employing someone returning to work.

We understand that not all vacancies are suitable, but we would welcome the opportunity to discuss your recruitment needs and identify opportunities where we can help.

How can we help?

• Look at your recruitment processes and review your job descriptions to maximise the number of candidates applying
• Put you in contact with candidates who have completed relevant pre-employment training and are ready to start
• Help to screen applications - advertise, interview and shortlist for your consideration
• Arrange interviews and work experience opportunities
• Support to manage your new employees transition into your work place through in work support

If you would like to discuss potential vacancies or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Works Better by email works.better@kirklees.gov.uk or by telephone 01484 221000 (ask for Works Better).
