Recruitment services

Working Chance offers all the support and guidance you would expect to receive from a commercial recruitment consultancy. 

We advise our candidates on every aspect of finding a job, from building a strong CV to preparing for interviews to mapping out a potential career change. We make placements with a wide range of employers across a variety of sectors, from major corporate companies to SMEs to charities of all kinds and sizes. 

Our expert recruitment consultants can help you find the perfect fit, whether you're looking for full-time or part-time, paid or voluntary, permanent or occasional work. We want to make sure that our placements are sustainable - not just racking up numbers, but helping you into a job that will work out in the longer term. This is why we put so much effort into matching up employers with the perfect candidates. We won't put you forward for a job if we don't think it would be right for you. 

One-to-one guidance

Although we operate as a recruitment consultancy, our work goes above and beyond what is offered by recruitment agencies on the high street. Our consultants offer tailored, one-to-one support around identifying your skills and aspirations, building up your confidence, and overcoming any other issues which may be preventing you from finding or holding down a job.

Our team is highly experienced in working with women who have been through the criminal justice and care systems. We are experts at helping candidates prepare to disclose any convictions they have to a potential employer. We know that the way you talk about your past can make all the difference to your future, which is why we offer plenty of opportunities to practise your disclosure before a real interview. 

Our support doesn't end once you've started your job. Once you are registered with Working Chance, you can come back and use our services whenever you need to. 

Employability training

Working Chance offers a range of courses and workshops to help build up your employability and confidence.

Whether you need intensive coaching on how to start looking for work or just a quick refresher course for your IT skills, we will make sure you are ready to tackle the challenges of finding a job. 

Support services

Many of our candidates are ready and keen to find a job, but held back by obstacles in other areas of their lives. 

We have a dedicated support team who can offer advice and guidance on personal issues including debt, housing, childcare, domestic abuse and mental health concerns.
