Ready for Work in Scotland

Ready for Work offers businesses a structured means to support some of society’s most disadvantaged, socially isolated and vulnerable people back on their feet and into work whilst making solid business sense for all companies involved.

Through support from businesses, Ready For Work participants undergo training and work placements and progress into employment.

Businesses benefit from a cost-effective recruitment process, stronger ties with the local community, personal and professional development of employee volunteers, increased staff diversity, and heightened job satisfaction and staff loyalty.

By accessing this programme, businesses gain access to a fresh, new pool of committed, dedicated, ambitious employees – all to your company’s advantage and to society’s gain.  This unique and innovative approach to tackling social issues such as homelessness enables your company to have a direct impact on peoples’ lives.

Ready for Work in Scotland is supported by players of People's Postcode Lottery.
