Pre-employ is a structured and unified approach to work placements – giving employers and candidates the opportunity to see how they fit into the business. The programme usually includes an element of pre-placement and workplace learning.


  • Bespoke programmes can be designed and implemented to an employer’s needs including:
    • the length of placement
    • whether placements are ‘paid’ or not
    • tailoring it to specific candidate groups.
  • All necessary candidate checks are carried out as part of the selection process.
  • We carry out a significant percentage of the up-front candidate assessment as part of the development programme.
  • The candidates’ job readiness and stage of potential employability is assessed prior to and throughout the placement.
  • The employer can employ the candidate at the end of the placement.
