Who we work with

Ready for Work can only achieve what it does with the support of numerous companies and referral agencies around the country.

Our programme activity is underpinned by our eight national partners. Accenture, Bain & Company, Barclays, Carillion plc, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP, Marks & Spencer, Royal Mail, and Waitrose support the programme around the country as well as driving our ongoing strategy. The programme also recevies support from players of the People's Postcode Lottery. 

Ready for Work is another string to our bow in terms of what we can offer to our service users, which provides proven, successful outcomes.

A total of 150 organisations provide training, placements, volunteers or financial support to help the most disadvantaged groups to gain and sustain employment through Ready for Work. Every business has a part to play – contact us or visit our get involved pages to join this network.

A wide range of hostels, community organisations and probation services across the country work with us to identify the local people who would benefit from Ready for Work. By working together with local charities, participants have access to ongoing support while they complete the programme.
