The Meriden-based company is now one of the market leaders in the delivery of the initiative, which aims to tackle long-term unemployment and social exclusion.
More than 5,000 people in Birmingham and Solihull have already got jobs during the last 20 months as a result of the initiative, with an in-work retention rate of 90 per cent for a period of 13 weeks or longer. The Pertemps Employment Alliance is helping many ethnic minority residents in the city by staging in-house English as a second language courses, increasing their employability levels by lowering language barriers.
