A FIRM providing recruitment services has completed a shake-up as its current funding stream comes to an end.

UP & Working, based at the Media Centre, has diversified into new areas to generate revenue – but is pledged to continue support for clients and partners across Kirklees.

The agency will continue to offer information, advice and guidance to candidates with barriers preventing them from securing employment – which will be done in association with UP & Working Ltd and their parent company Sadeh Lok.

Group operations director Paul Dolan said: “Funding the employment support service ourselves allows us greater flexibility when serving our customers, clients and partners throughout Kirklees. We are excited about this new era and look forward to continuing our positive work in the local community.”

UP & Working said it had achieved major success over the past five years – placing more than 500 people into employment, supporting more than 1,000 beneficiaries and assisting more than 100 individuals with skills development.

The company has also supported more than 50 businesses in the region and helped to create 15 new jobs among those firms.

UP & Working Ltd will continue with its commercial activity supplying temporary and permanent staff .

The UPŠ& Working project is led by Access Matrix Ltd, a subsidiary of the award winning Sadeh Lok Housing Group.
