Mandatory Work Activity and European Social Fund

Sarina Russo Job Access learned last week that we were unsuccessful in our applications to deliver the Mandatory Work Activity programme on behalf of the Department of Work & Pensions.

In notifying us of these results, DWP were highly complimentary of our delivery model, comprehensive supply chain arrangements and engagement with local partners. In each of these areas, Sarina Russo Job Access was awarded the highest possible score, reflecting our experience of delivering outstanding work placements through the CTF programme over the past 15 months. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our supply chain partners who responded at incredibly short notice to help us put together such a high quality tender application.

In addition, DWP have recently confirmed that they will be launching a new family-focused European Social Fund programme in May. We are already preparing to respond and will email our supply chain partners with any subcontracting requirements nearer the time - but in the meantime, if you have any thoughts on this area of work, please don't hesitate to contact us on
