G4S Employment Support Services

G4S Employment Support Services aims to support tens of thousands of unemployed people into sustainable employment across the UK

G4S Employment Support Services (ESS) is a Prime Contractor delivering regional contracts focused on disadvantaged and marginalised groups throughout England. We currently deliver the Work Programme & Community Work Placements for the Department of Work and Pensions and have recently finished delivering the last round of ESF Families Support Programme.

We have already supported over 40,000 people into employment through these programmes and will support many more over the coming years.

Alternatively, you can use the menu on the left-hand side of the page to learn about how we deliver employment services and what we can offer jobseekers, employers and potential partners.

Partnership Opportunities 

  • Are you interested in working with G4S Employment Support Services in the future?
  • Could you bring quality and value to our supply chain?

G4S will be submitting multiple bids for new programmes commissioned via the European Social Fund’s (ESF) 2014-2020 programme. We are keen to expand our existing and varied network of delivery partners, to include those with the capacity, experience and most of all passion to deliver innovative employability, skills and enterprise solutions that meet the needs of a broad range of customers.

G4S is currently developing its potential delivery models and we are looking for potential partners to complete our Expression of Interest (EOI).
