Kirkwood Consulting commenced the delivery of ‘JobCentre Plus Support Contract’ as a subcontractor to Pinnacle People in Kent and Surrey in January of 2010.

Over the last 6 years we have built an outstanding reputation for consistently providing high levels of service and having a deep understanding of the customers we work with. Our success has been built on a combination of commercial awareness, business acumen, strong knowledge of the labour market, partnership development and an excellent understanding of future job opportunities.

Our welfare to work delivery is based on a belief and enthusiasm that comes from our deep understanding of the real life issues faced by our client groups. We believe the route out of poverty and worklessness comes from giving those that are less advantaged the opportunity to make a difference through sustained and continuous employment.

Within the provision, we support a wide range of customers ranging from Lone Parents, Over 50’s, Young People, Ex-Offenders, Long Term Unemployed customers and Newly Unemployed Professionals. The focus of our success comes from tackling multiple barriers, finding sustainable employment and ensuring all customers have access to voluntary employment and training opportunities that are right for them.

We work to:

  • Increase the overall levels of employment by working with charities, non for profit organisations, community groups, local and national employers
  • We provide effective career coaching
  • Match individuals seeking employment with the jobs available and address skills gaps where necessary to make them more marketable
  • Support individuals with job applications, CV’s and statements for application forms, interview tips and techniques
  • An inside view on what hiring managers are looking for
  • Help the long term unemployed recognise their own skills and build their confidence and self esteem to move them into new careers
  • Work with disadvantaged/minority groups, removing the barriers to enable them to find sustainable employment
  • Provide continuous support to our client groups during their transitional period into employment
  • Assist budding entrepreneurs with business start up advice and guidance
  • Give advice on policies, procedures, training and accreditations
