Jobcentre Plus offers all unemployed people, including those previously employed in the public sector, tailored help to get into work quickly. Support can include help with finding a job, skills training, guidance on apprenticeships, pre-employment training, and help to set up a business. Help can also be provided prior to a person becoming unemployed if they are being made redundant.
Through the Work Programme those at risk of long-term unemployment are given personalised support to find and stay in work. Jobcentre Plus provides further intensive support to people returning from the Work Programme without a job.
