Want to join us in our mission to place people into work?

We are always on the lookout for both new employer partners and referral partners so please do get in touch if you feel you would like to be a part of the programme or know more about what we can offer.

We operate throughout the UK and are able to tailor both our information workshops and our Careers PG employer programmes to suit.

We understand that 1 size simply does not fit all!

We always welcome all kinds of conversations and will always take the time to explore new ways of working together

Employer Partners

We run our work experience, traineeships and apprenticeships programmes on both a ‘regional’ and ‘individual’ cohort basis.


What is a regional cohort?


Simply put, we run regional cohorts when we have a large number of different employer partners who are looking to recruit within a busy region.


What is an Individual Cohort / pledge?


Looking to give back or have a small volume of capacity? Not a problem, we take on smaller 1 of pledges too. No employer opportunity is too big or too small! We call this in an individual pledge.

Referral Partners

Are you a job centre, training provider, local employment service, council, charity, school or college that is looking to refer small or large volumes of candidates onto us for some more information, advice and guidance? Not a problem!

We run daily ‘live and online’ virtual information sessions for up to 15 people at a time.

What do we cover in our workshops?

In our virtual workshops, we welcome potential new recruits to help them gain more information about life in a range of sectors. We offer a live workshop so that participants are able to ask questions as they go along. We welcome anyone who may be exploring a role within animal care, hospitality, customer service, business admin or people who may have already gained some experience but still need that extra support. Information workshops are hosted by our team of qualified trainers and also come with visual slides to help the participants.

(Please note – Should you have anyone with a specific need, we can offer this information in an alternative format. Please do not hesitate to ask! If we can do it, we will!)

Meaningful Local Relationships


We are always looking to grow our local community referral partners and welcome the chance to work with all types of partners. We currently work with a range of educational institutes and support services within our employer’s local communities.

We are more than happy to adapt to our referral partners needs and welcome any kind of conversation about how we can support each other’s accomplishments and goals. We want everyone to be a part of the picture and to ensure that everyone benefits from the work of The Careers Programme Group.
