Celebrating our long history supporting people in Wales

Home Icon

Maximus is extremely proud of our long history of working in Wales.

With our Remploy heritage, we have been supporting people across Wales to move forward with their lives for more than 75 years.

In 2015, after more than six decades of leading the way in disability employment, Remploy joined Maximus to offer greater support to disadvantaged people.

As a global leader in the health and employability sectors, Maximus is committed to helping people to overcome their barriers and move into sustainable employment.

We currently operate in 18 delivery locations, supporting participants on five employment and skills programmes across Wales.

Our teams have an in-depth understanding of the needs and challenges of working within such diverse communities. This knowledge allows us to tailor our employability programmes to support participants who are both the closest and the furthest away from the labour market.

Sharon Michaelson-Yeates, Head of Employer Engagement in Wales, commented on the importance of these relationships:

“We partner with businesses, working alongside them to create sustainable job opportunities for anyone referred onto one of our programmes, offering cost-free recruitment solutions. Our employer partners have access to our huge pool of job-ready participants from a wide range of backgrounds.”

Developing partnerships with local and national employers across different sectors, like Giovanni’s, Tesco, and Owens Transport, enables us to make a real difference to communities around the country.

Maximus works with local partners throughout Wales, funding local services, sharing our offices, running joint events and bringing organisations together with our Community Partnership Network (CPN).

We offer participants a range of tailored support through our CPN members. Launched five years ago in Wales, the CPN began with 41 organisations and has since grown to more than 100.

All are passionate and committed to supporting participants with multiple barriers to move into employment.

Helen Cornet, Community Partnership Manager for Wales said:

“Some of our participants have multiple barriers to employment. Working with the Community Partnership Network offers huge benefits.

“Health and wellbeing support, employability, accredited training as well as support for substance misuse, mental health, and domestic violence – providing a variety of services from employability support to specialist interventions.”

Every year we support thousands of people into meaningful employment. We are passionate about the work we do, and we are looking forward to the future to help even more people in Wales transform their lives.
