FAQ for Candidates

Below we have provided a number of helpful frequently asked questions and answers regarding our jobs services for candidates:

 

What types of jobs does Workforce offer?

We offer short term, temporary roles, and also longer term temporary to permanent opportunities across central England.

 

When I visit an Workforce branch for the first time what should I bring?

Firstly, you will need to bring the correct documentation to show that you have a right to work in the UK. This can be either a passport or birth certificate which should be accompanied by documents from the tax office. 

If you are from a country within the European Union (EU) then we will need a copy of your passport. If you are from outside the EU, then we will need your passport and a working visa.

Your documentation is vital and without it we cannot place you into work – either for a temporary or a permanent role.
