Employers - Workwise


There are some very good reasons why many employers just like you already use Workwise. 

Each year, we support hundreds of people with experience of mental illness to return to work; people who have skills and who want to work. 

Employers tell us they love working with Workwise because:

There is no cost to use our service.

All the work we do for employers is absolutely free. There is absolutely no charge to you or your business – yet the benefits can be huge. 

We save you time and money.

Finding staff can be time-consuming and difficult. And it costs money.

Not with Workwise. As part of our free service, we can provide people from our books for you to interview. We can also pre-screen candidates, hold information sessions, provide premises for interviews and, most importantly, match you with the right person for the job.

Once you’ve appointed someone, our support doesn’t have to end. We’re happy to provide support to you and your staff member through the first few months of employment. It’s all part of our service. 

We match the right people to the right jobs.

Our focus is on sustainable employment; keeping people in jobs long-term. That’s why we work hard to match the right people with the right jobs. It’s better for them, and it’s better for you. 

Workwise people are good employees.

We work with great people. Research shows that people assisted by supported employment agencies have better than average safety records, have lower levels of absenteeism and use fewer sick days.

The fact is, people with experience of mental illness want to work. They’re at work because they want to be. Having a paid job is an important part in getting well and staying well.   

Everyone wins.

Everyone wins when people return to work.

The community wins because having people in work decreases the amount of support needed from tax payers.

Employers win because not only do you obtain a loyal new employee, you develop and foster a culture of inclusion in your business.

The vast majority of employers who have used Workwise to help them find staff say they would use us again. Many of them have used us multiple times to help them find the right people for their workplace.

Give us a call. We’d love to do the same thing for you.


People with experience of mental illness that we employ are some of our best staff. There is everything to gain and nothing to fear.” – Employer
