Employers willing to provide Work Trials are identified through various channels. For example:
personal contact made by Jobcentre Plus staff as part of routine marketing, vacancy submission and vacancy follow-up activity;
national promotion, including via Backing Young Britain and the Jobcentre Plus and Directgov websites; and
Jobcentre Plus customers promoting themselves as willing to undertake a Work Trial when applying for vacancies.
Before an employer can participate in the Work Trial programme they must enter into a formal agreement with Jobcentre Plus, that covers the terms and conditions of the programme. The agreement has a requirement for the employer to provide each Work Trial participant with a named contact who will supervise their progress.
