We're here to give you a fair start into employment

We’re changing how we operate during the COVID-19 outbreak

Whilst our offices are closed to ensure the health and wellbeing of our participants and staff, we continue to provide support, either via video call or over the telephone, whichever method works for you.

We are still here to help

We are still able to help you with your search for your next ideal job or, if you are not ready to move into work straight away, we can help you overcome challenges that you may be experiencing. Some examples of the help we can provide include:

  • Specialist support to help you overcome barriers into employment
  • Building your confidence 
  • Improving your communication skills
  • Creating a winning CV to help you stand out from the crowd
  • Assisting with job applications
  • Preparing you for interviews and helping you develop new techniques
  • Providing you with ongoing in-work support once you’ve found your ideal job.

We recognise that many people have unfortunately lost their jobs as a direct result of coronavirus, and will want to get themselves back into work quickly. We can help.

We also recognise that some employers are experiencing high demands of their services due to COVID-19 and are looking to recruit more staff. If you are an employer our local account managers can help you with that. 

If you have any questions relating to Fair Start Scotland or more information on how to access our support, please contact us to find out more: RemployScotland@remploy.co.uk

Fair Start Scotland

We can offer a flexible employment support service to help you move towards or into work. Taking part is completely voluntary and won’t affect your benefits.

If you live in Lanarkshire, Angus, Dundee, Perth or Kinross, and are not in education or currently employed, our team can provide you with up to 18 months of tailored and one-to-one support to find employment.

Our support doesn’t stop there, we will be with you every step of the way once you find work.

    After choosing to be supported by us, you will be matched to your own dedicated key worker throughout your Fair Start journey. They will support you through phone calls, emails, video chat and text messages, to help you find the right job and develop new skills. 

    Hear from some of our key workers, Claire and Aileen, about how they are helping participants on Fair Start Scotland:

    Your key worker will get to know you, identify your skills and strengths, and if there are any particular challenges making it harder for you to move into work. Together, you will build a step-by-step action plan to help you get to where you want to be. You’ll have access to:

    • Specialist support, tailor-made to your needs
    • Help with job searches, CVs, application forms and interview preparation
    • Training to get you new skills ready for future job goals
    • Volunteering opportunities to gain vital experience
    • Links with employers to help you secure placements or jobs that suit your circumstances and so much more.

    For up to 12-18 months, depending on your individual needs and once in work, we’ll still be there for you, making sure you are settled and the role is the right fit for you.

    We’re incredibly proud of all of the people we work with through Fair Start Scotland and their stories make for inspiring reading.
