Ingeus Deloitte joint venture
The Work Programme
From June 2011 the Department for Work and Pensions’ flagship Work Programme will replace many of the welfare-to-work programmes currently being delivered across the UK.
The Work Programme, based on a partnership between government and providers from across the public, private and third sectors, seeks to bring a new dynamic to welfare-to-work in the UK and aims to support more people to move from benefits into lasting employment.
A joint venture between leading welfare-to-work provider, Ingeus UK Limited, and professional services firm, Deloitte, has been selected as a ‘preferred supplier’ under the DWP’s Framework for the Provision of Employment Related Support Services. The joint venture has submitted tenders to deliver the Work Programme as a prime provider in seven regions across the UK.
The Ingeus and Deloitte joint venture is also developing services in other areas, such as education, skills and training, and health and wellbeing.
The joint venture combines Ingeus’ strong track record of delivering high-quality employability services with Deloitte’s expertise and capability in public service delivery, particularly with regard to supply chain management and large-scale programme implementation.
