In March 2021, Connectr (formerly known as MyKindaFuture) in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions, launched their ‘Get into Work’ initiative to support jobseekers across the UK to secure work and succeed once there.
Their innovative online mentoring platform has been proven to support people from all groups to get into work. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, usage has more than doubled. The ambition is to provide access to useful support to those that need it most and get Britain back into work.
Connectr not only provides unemployed people with mentoring and upskilling resources to support them into work (from initial application to day one in a job and beyond), but it can also help them explore working for themselves or starting their own business.
Connectr have recently launched their new partnership in collaboration with Sage as part of the ‘Get into Work’ mentoring Initiative with DWP. This will support people from varied and inclusive backgrounds as they discover how to start their own business and take their first steps doing so.
This new partnership will help boost the wider economy by creating more businesses, and therefore jobs, across the UK. These future business owners that are in the very early stages of starting a business, will have access to mentors and modular content that covers everything from ‘how to name your business’ to ‘finding your first customer’.
With 1-1 mentoring & exclusive access to tailored content designed to support people looking to start as entrepreneurs, the Connectr mentoring platform is a completely FREE way to develop your business skills & start networking with industry experts today.
