What does it do?

A work trial is a way of trying out a potential employee before offering them a job. Once agreed with Jobcentre Plus, you can offer a work trial if the job is for 16 hours or more a week and lasts at least 13 weeks. The work trial can last up to 30 days.

What will the benefits be for me?
It’s risk free - you can try the person out before making a final decision.
You know they’re committed because they’re volunteering to do it.
There are no wage costs - people continue to get their benefits.
There’s very little paperwork and it’s fuss-free.
How do I access the service?
How much will it cost

The Work Trial will come at no cost to you and the employee is still in receipt of their benefits.
