Free Recruitment Services

Groundwork can provide a wide range of FREE recruitment services to organisations of all size and sector. We are not a commercial recruitment agency - Groundwork is a professional charity focussed on helping local people and organisations.

Groundwork is part of a government programme to train and find jobs for local unemployed people. This means we can offer you a bespoke package of services that will save you time and money on recruitment. Our services include:

  • Identification of suitable candidates that match your requirements
  • Bespoke advertising of your company values to potential candidates
  • Short-listing and pre-screening applicants for interview
  • Free interview facilities at our offices in Bury, Middleton, Oldham and Radcliffe
  • Unpaid and monitored work trials for potential new employees
  • Source free training and qualifications for successful applicants up to NVQ L3
  • Set up Apprenticeships with local providers, aimed at your business needs

Our free support is open to any employers looking to recruit from 1 to 1000 new staff members. Groundwork is keen to help organisations seeking to support their local community and recruit local people.

Please note: We are unable to accept CV's from individuals - we only work with people who have completed a Groundwork training or voluntary programme, or individuals referred to us by Jobcentre Plus.
