Investor Comensation UK Ltd - Giving unemployed people a chance
The team at Investor Compensation UK Ltd based in Keighley, West Yorkshire have recruited eight long term unemployed people to join their claims processing teams. Working in partnership with Bradford Job Centre Plus and Back 2 Work Complete Training, the scheme offers unemployed people a two week re-training period leading to a guaranteed interview with an employer. The Government funded initiative enables employers and training providers to work together to retrain people who are perhaps looking for extra help in securing a job.
Fourteen people joined the latest course and eight of those people successfully secured roles with Investor Compensation UK Ltd. After a flying start undergoing a two week academy training period, the new colleagues are currently being supported in their new roles within the business.
Denise Davies, Head of Human Resources commented that 'Back 2 Work Complete training have done an amazing job in two short weeks to provide people with the skills and confidence to secure a permanent job with an employer. The training programme covers both employability skills and gives the participants an understanding of how to deliver excellent customer service and what it is like to work in a telephone based customer service role. Undoubtedly, this has given the participants a fantastic head start in securing a role where without this support, they may not have been able to secure an interview'.
Gavin Treacy of Back 2 Work Complete Training was delighted with the high success rate from this group and said 'it shows that being unemployed does not mean being unemployable'.
