MSD seeks to engage providers to undertake delivery of the Employment Placement Service (EPS) programme in Canterbury Region from September 2019 to 30 June 2020 specifically for clients who are in receipt of Sole Parent Support benefit. The aim of the Employment Placement Service is to assist clients to prepare for and achieve sustainable employment.
MSD is seeking providers who can evidence having successfully delivered employment services through which participants, who are Sole Parents whose oldest child is aged under 14 years, have achieved sustainable employment outcomes. They should have the ability to provide a service that addresses client’s individual needs and circumstances in order to support clients to move into sustainable employment as quickly as possible. Successful providers will have a good understanding of the barriers to employment that people face, good employer networks and strong relationships with other organisations in the community that can help provide further support to clients as they enter and remain in employment.
