Work EastRen are East Renfrewshire Council’s employability team. They support new and existing businesses to grow and prosper through a coordinated package of advice, recruitment and training support.
Their FREE services include advertising job vacancies and vacancy management, a full aftercare service to ensure that your new recruit settles into their role, work placements, information and advice on employer recruitment incentives and access to funding and support.
They currently have access to the Regional Employer Incentive Programme, an eligibility based grant which supports employers to recruit staff who without additional support might not make a successful transition into or be able to secure work, further education or training.
Employers can recruit for a new job and claim up to a maximum of 50% of the participant’s salary costs, for a maximum period of 12 months up to a value of £3000.
If you are interested in learning more about this grant please call Michael McKernan, Work EastRen, 0141 577 3325.
