The successful candidate will be flexible to the needs of the business and a good team player.

We help jobseekers in their journey back to work through our on-going support and commitment to community work placement programmes by providers including PCMI and G4S.

“Edu-Care are comfortably one of our best hosts to work with, they provide a thorough work-based placement experience. They interview all participants in the first instance and having sat in on the interviews myself, they are similar to those the participants will experience in the wider commercial environment. Edu-Care operates as you would expect any other corporate company with targets, business development and a variety of sales-based roles whilst always carrying an underpinning ethos of supporting participants through the process and back in to work. They maintain a great level of contact with me at PCMI, he keeps me informed of participants progress and any challenges he is experiencing, something we all really appreciate.” Dan Hewitt – Employment Adviser, Community Work Placement Programme (CWP) based at PCMI.

“It was brilliant to see CWP placements in action, you have a brilliant placement host in the form of Edu-Care.”
Claire Matthews, Supply Chain Manager, Community Work Placement Programme, G4S.

“When the CWP programme started last June, Edu-Care quickly became a preferred placement. Darran embraced the programme and understood the need to support the participants due to their sometimes very limited work experience. An excellent relationship has been formed between Edu-Care and ourselves and both parties are now seeing the results of the time spent with Darran and his team. Already 3 have gained full time paid employment following their placement. The relationship between Edu-Care and ourselves is both friendly and professional.”
Diane Moysey, Programme Co-ordinator, Community Work Placement Programme based at PCMI.
