Working Well

Together as InWorkGM, share a passion for giving local people the knowledge and independence to create better lives for themselves and their communities through employment.

Greater Manchester is growing, and we are passionate about ensuring that the growth is inclusive to all and this passion is what drives those working on Working Well to create opportunities for those participants that we work with and we can only do that thanks to the support of our key partners and employers who are willing to adopt a different outlook to their workforce and recruitment strategies.

A key element of this is supporting the employers that we work with to grow their businesses and support them to not only create new jobs but good jobs.

InWorkGM will fully screen applicants prior to forwarding their application. Applicants come from a variety of backgrounds and personal circumstances. Some customers have had a period of illness, others have found themselves being made redundant due to the economic climate, above all they all have a strong work ethic and are keen to return to the employment market.

InWorkGM aims to offer employers a wide range of candidates from many sectors bringing, in some cases, a wealth of experience or a desire to re-train within a new role. Before the candidates are short-listed they are prepared and screened by the Employer Engagement Team to ensure they are of the highest calibre available, with a determination to prove themselves and their abilities to a potential employer.

The InWorkGM engagement teams will conduct in-depth pre-screening sessions which employers are welcome to attend to see the process for themselves. The engagement teams aim to complete this full process with 10 working days. All of the support available is free for employers to access. The priority, to support individuals, some who may be disadvantaged, to find lasting and meaningful work.
