Big Issue Recruit

Big Issue Recruit is the latest innovative venture from Big Issue Group. A specialist recruitment service, dedicated to supporting people who face barriers to joining the workforce into sustainable employment. Find out about our first full year of work and impact by reading our Yr 1 Impact Report.

Big Issue Recruit is a person-centred service and free to candidates, supporting individuals pre, during and post-employment. Big Issue Recruit creates social value through the provision of training, employability, health and wellbeing support, financial and digital inclusion and ultimately sustainable careers.

On signing up candidates are partnered with a personal Job Coach, to understand their needs and goals, build confidence, skills and resilience and coach them through the selection process, to secure their desired roles. Job Coaches will continue to work with candidates post placement, to establish a great relationship with their new employer and support them to thrive in their new role.

Big Issue Recruit offers employers a reliable, ethical, end-to-end method of recruitment which reduces the risk (and cost) of candidate churn. We are seeking partner organisations who want to create employment pathways and work with us to fill their employment vacancies, diversify their workforce and create significant social value. We offer employers:

· Tailored support to hiring managers to prepare them to work with people with complex needs and best sustain their placements.

· Capacity building post hire to support candidates in their placements, whilst they settle into their new roles

· Management and promotion of employer vacancies through jobs.bigissue.com · The ability to demonstrate the social value of your investment with an annual impact report, based on SROI methodology, which evidence’s ESG commitments
