Recruitment support

Helping you to find the ideal staff for your business

North Lanarkshire's Working's Prospects programme is committed to helping you develop the most important part of your business - your people.


We have recently improved the service we offer to employers through Prospects, North Lanarkshire's Working employability programme.  As part of our new approach, we will support your vacancy if we are confident we are able to fill it, saving you time and any delay to your recruitment process. If we are able to support your business you may be entitled to 50% of the national minimum wage (or apprenticeship rate) for the first six months of the candidate's employment, subject to other terms and conditions.

Getting the right person

As well as helping with wage costs we can also help you get the right person for the job.
