A brief introduction
Interserve Learning & Employment is part of an international PLC – Interserve – and is a major supplier of employment and skills services. We are growing rapidly and have more than 30 branches across the UK, including a head office in Sheffield, where the company began. Our people are committed to putting clients and users first and this premise remains at the heart of our business.
Then and now
We were formed in December 2014, following Interserve’s acquisition of the Employment & Skills Group and its subsequent merger with its existing employability operations, known as Interserve Working Futures. The creation of Interserve Learning & Employment provided us with additional resources to improve customer service and strengthen our brand, complementing the citizen-centric work we carry out nationwide.
Public and private sector skills
We are a leading provider of vocational skills, information, advice and welfare to work services in the UK, meeting the needs of government, individual customers and employers. Clients include the Skills Funding Agency, Department for Work and Pensions, National Apprenticeship Service and European Social Fund and our portfolio includes two Work Programme Prime contracts, the Mandatory Work Activity programme, Community Work Placements, Apprenticeships and Traineeships. In addition, we work with private sector organisations of all sizes to provide tailored support that will reduce skills gaps and raise productivity. We are commercial, but with a conscience, focusing on people, as well as profitability.
Progress in these areas is measured against our SustainAbilities agenda. It encourages us to act in an ethical, sustainable and transparent manner that allows us to innovate and inspire those we seek to assist.
