WorkFit is now in the North East / North West of England & South East Wales

Due to its ongoing success, WorkFit has extended its reach and now has two dedicated Employment Development Officers: one covering the North East and North West of England and one covering South East Wales. We are actively looking for new employers to sign up in these regions as we have candidates ready, so if you would like to become a WorkFit employer, register for a no obligation, no fee assessment today.

img_0766AWe are delighted that award-winning restaurateur and chef Mitch Tonks has recently employed Sam in one of his restaurants. Sam already had an NVQ Level 2 in Hospitality and Catering so was well prepared for his new role.  Mitch and his staff have embraced the progressive ethos of WorkFit and are benefiting hugely from their new colleague’s input.  Mitch said

“You can become a great chef or a great restaurant manager if you have the aspiration, it’s all about the attitude and that’s what we recognised in Sam … it’s helped us to become better people in our business; to help others who are perhaps in a different place in the world to us…”

You can hear everything that Mitch has to say in this exclusive film:

img_0783We have placed people in other organisations large and small: from The National Trust, JoJo Maman Bébé, Cardiff University, Donna Karen and Travelodge to family-run, independent companies e.g. Brown’s Hairdressing Group, Morgan Richardson Insurance Brokers Ltd and Carter Chemists.  All of the employers have successfully tapped into a new talent pool of people, raising work aspirations across their businesses.
