Subcontractor to Seetec and Ingeus (Work Programme):
Ixion has supported over the last 4 years unemployed individuals in London into sustained employment including the delivery of short courses and training to improve employment prospects.
Subcontractor to G4S (Community Work Placements):
We have historically support customers whose key barrier to work is a lack of work experience, motivation or both, and offer them a work placement. Six months on a work placement provided the opportunity for customers to develop their vocational and employability skills, to add significant experience to their CV and to demonstrate their capabilities to employers. The associated job search support helped them use these skills and experience to secure paid employment.
