Get Set UK Newsletter May 2022

Welcome to your monthly newsletter

May was a fantastic month for new job starts. Our teams in London and Crawley worked extremely hard, and we had the pleasure of creating 393 new jobs last month, bringing the year-to-date total to 1722. Our advisors always do their best to instil hope and optimism in the participants and, most importantly, to assist them in finding new employment.

On the 27th of May, we held our first Job Fair in 2022 in our Camberwell office. We are extremely proud that 15 job offers were made on that day, and 117 people were asked to attend an interview. We’d like to thank our entire team for their efforts in organising this event. Thank you to all of our partners and employers, as well as the 349 attendees at the job fair.
