Employer engagement


More than recruitment.

At Newground Together, our Employer Engagement team work with businesses to be part of something better.

Unlike traditional recruitment services, we are a social enterprise and we deliver professional services in a competitive marketplace. All of which are 100% free of charge to our partners.

Newground Together deliver employability solutions to build communities. We are here to add to your current workforce with loyal, hard working, committed local candidates.

What’s the catch? 

There isn’t one, Newground Together are the charitable arm of Together Housing Group and we fund a variety of community projects and groups to help improve the lives and opportunities for local people.

As a non-profit organisation our mission is to offer professional services, donating our profits to develop, improve and sustain happier, healthier and more resilient communities.

All we ask from our partners is for an email should a candidate start a new role, and honest feedback on any candidates who aren’t successful. That is how our funding works and how we help with our candidates own development.

Our dedicated team of employment advisors will have already worked through our clients CV’s and transferrable skills. They will also be looking at further training and development opportunities as well as various qualifications and licence such as;

  • CSCS Card
  • Health and Social Care
  • FLT Licences
