Socially responsible recruitment at scale

The Social Recruitment Framework (SRF) helps employers to make a positive difference to society.

Recruiting from and supporting disadvantaged groups such as long-term unemployed people, people with disabilities or people with convictions can have a huge impact on communities – and help businesses to be seen as an employer of choice.

We’ve built the SRF to tackle large-scale unemployment and fragmented training locally, regionally and nationally. We’ve been supporting people to have better careers for decades, so understand how important sustainable employment is for people, businesses and the wider community.

Through accessing the relevant funding streams available, we’re able to link employers to tailored training opportunities and give people the skills that businesses need to be successful.

We’ll work with you to understand your exact needs, identify training best placed to suit your vacancies and find the right talent to help your business to grow.

The SRF supports employers with single point, coordinated access to some of the UK’s best local, regional and national employability and skills training providers, providing a route for employers to tap into the circa £10bn UK skills and employability funding.

We're always looking to expand our network of Training Providers too so we can support more people back into work - check out our Partners page for more information
