Ingeus UK is delighted to announce that we have been awarded new contracts to give Universal Credit claimants who have been out of work for at least 12 months enhanced support to find jobs in their local area. Part of the government’s Plan for Jobs to help millions of people across the country who have been directly impacted by coronavirus (Covid-19), the new Department for Work and Pensions Restart scheme will commence in June 2021.
 
We will deliver Restart to help more than 260,000 people in Greater Manchester and Central & West London. Our locally integrated programme will deliver tailored support to individuals in partnership with an expert supply chain, employers, local government and specialists, breaking down any employment barriers that could be holding them back from finding work.
 
Ingeus UK Chief Executive, Fiona Monahan, said, “This is a significant contract award for Ingeus and allows us to widen our employability services to help more people find meaningful, lasting work, providing the extra support they need during these difficult times. The award of two contracts further establishes Ingeus UK as an industry leader in employability services, reaffirming our successful model for working collaboratively with customers and communities to embed local, personalised services which enable better lives and help businesses thrive with talented workforces. Our team have worked incredibly hard to get to this point; and we all look forward to working with the other Prime providers, our partners and colleagues as part of the collective effort to deliver the government’s Plan for Jobs”.
 
APM Group Chief Executive, Michael Anghie, said, “We’re delighted to be extending our employability services to even more customers in the UK. Together with our partners, we have a critical role to play in helping the UK’s economic recovery through supporting people into work and helping businesses with their recruitment needs. We look forward to working with our partners and stakeholders to deliver the new Restart programme”.
