Recruit Wick is a multi agency initiative aimed at supporting and assisting small businesses on all aspects of the recruitment process. This project follows on from the highly successful Recruit Sutherland which operated as an 18 month pilot project from April 2001. The project is designed to deliver a personalised, tailored service to small businesses and sole traders who wish to recruit. Recruitment can be a daunting prospect and often the bureaucracy and red tape can be off-putting for businesses. However Recruit Wick aims to reduce the difficulties and give businesses the opportunity to take on a first employee or add to their workforce with the maximum of assistance and the minimum of disruption. Advice and guidance on employment legislation, PAYE, Health & Safety issues and financial subsidies is available from Moira Stuart, Recruitment Counsellor. Moira can be contacted on Freephone 08000 858560
The project is part funded by the European Social Fund and has a mix of public and private backers.
