Why should you become a SWAPs Partner?

Helping people back to work

The Life You Want © is a life-changing course that gives the skills and knowledge to help people find their career, and gain the motivation and confidence to go for it.

Recro Consulting has been established since 2009 and over the last 13 years we have helped over 5,000 jobseekers into the career path they desire. We have done this by not only focusing on their soft skills, but also their personal and professional development.

Data shows that people are three times more likely to progress into employment from an occupationally specific pathway to that of generic employability programmes.

“I really enjoyed the course with Recro Consulting and felt it helped me to identify my strengths and include those in my CV. It was good to look at the employer’s perspective. Thank you for helping me get back into work”

Recro Partnership Promise

We have often been told we are the best provision in the Country. With our impressive track record and ability to tap into an overlooked talent market and get them work ready we promise to provide suitable candidates for your roles.

Recro Consulting understand that it’s not just about finding the person who matches the skills required but also having the right attitude and willingness to learn. As the saying goes ‘hire for attitude, train for skills’.

“I’m so pleased we have Recro delivering their programme for our customers at Jobcentre Plus. The feedback we’ve received has ALL been really positive leaving our customers feeling enthusiastic, supported and motivated to take their next steps into employment. For me, what sets Recro apart from other support we have is the way the programme looks at recruitment from the employers perspective, the different recruitment processes, and how sifting works. Thank you to all your staff, you’re a delight to work with.”

“I came away after two days feeling very positive, motivated and a lot more confident in ‘me’. The time we spent discussing CV’s was wonderful and gave me true inspiration to make the very most of my skills and what I have to offer. Before then I’d not really had that level of support and help. That, along with a multitude of other useful tips truly gave me the confidence I had lost the past six months or so.”
