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.
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.
Contact your local Jobcentre Plus to find out more.
The Work Trial will come at no cost to you and the employee is still in receipt of their benefits.
