Sector Based Work Academies

Sector Based Work Academies (SBWA) are a fantastic way to source both part-time and full-time staff members.

Our on-site employability team work with local people aged 18+ who are currently out of work and can provide pre-employment training centred around your business needs.

The work will then provide you with a ready made candidate shortlist, complete with staff who have the skills to make an immediate impact in the workplace.

Read how KFC used our SBWA to recruit their staff – some of whom are now within senior positions in the workplace.
