Newly unemployed travel professionals who contact government Job Centres will be referred to recruitment agency New Frontiers as part of a new government scheme.
This new initiative from the Department of Work & Pensions means that everyone referred to New Frontiers from the Job Centres will receive a fully funded Candidate Care Programme worth up to £100.
The programme will consist of a CV makeover, career consultation and one month’s subscription to the ASCOL candidate career portal. New Frontiers currently offer this chargeable service to all candidates in the travel industry, however it will be free to unemployed people who are referred to them.
New Frontiers managing director Julia Feuell said: "I am delighted that we have been chosen by the government to help people who have found themselves a casualty of this recession through no fault of their own. We are confident that our broad range of tools & expertise will help many people get back to work as quickly as possible."
The contract is for two years and it is estimated that private recruitment agencies across the country will be helping over 20,000 people.
