Trial or employ a candidate

Get in touch with The Wellbeing Service to trial or employ a candidate.

Candidates will arrive with a tailored development plan designed to effectively integrate them into your team.

The plan identifies the support The Wellbeing Service can provide (e.g. on-the-job coaching and access to funding if workplace adjustments are required).

Progress is regularly monitored and the development plan is reviewed. Support will be withdrawn gradually, but can be re-introduced if necessary.
