July 17, 2012 - PRLog -- Employers in the Birmingham, Solihull, and Black Country now have the support of grants for every job filled by an 18-24 year old employee.  Businesses employing youngsters for new vacancies can claim up to £2,275 a person.  EOS has launched their ‘Golden Ticket’ initiative to promote this great scheme to employers.  EOS is a prime provider helping the unemployed secure suitable work.

EOS provides 8 specialist training courses.  Young unemployed people with little or no previous work experience, or whose existing skills are no longer in demand by the local labour market, can undertake a retraining programme.  They gain entry-level qualifications and a general broadening of work opportunities.  The employer gains trained staff and a supporting grant.  EOS’s six Employment Centres spread across the region, deliver hands-on training in construction, catering, retail, security, warehousing, forklift driving, office administration, and even casino work.  

EOS encourages employers by providing Host workplace areas to replicate real business activities.  This enables employers to observe and assess candidates.  Eos provide on the job training, guidance and support for employees, equipment, training facilities and floor space at no cost.

It forms part of the governments’ flagship initiative for the long-term unemployed.  All sizes of business looking to expanding their labour force receive £2,275 for each job filled.  In addition The Support for Families programme helps families and lone parents overcome the problems of return to work.  EOS services include help with travel to work during the first week, assistance with potential in-work benefits, and financial support for clothing and equipment.

Last week, Chris Grayling, the Department of Work and Pensions Minister addressed The Welfare to Work Convention at the ICC.  The EOS programme is regarded as groundbreaking in its approach.  The convention coincided with the EOS first anniversary and as Patron Sponsors of the Welfare to Work Convention.  

It's indicative of how EOS can readily adapt to servicing the demands of the labour market and providing trained, work-ready candidates to fulfil immediate vacancies.  EOS remains in contact with the employee and employer to help to resolve any possible issues after filling the vacancy.  Although the economic recovery is slow there is a gradual improvement in the jobs market.  This work programme gives the unemployed the competitive edge in securing sustainable vacancies.  At the same time the employer is supported financially.
