Our Employer Engagement team engage with many partners across Scotland to source sustainable employment opportunities for our Fair Start Scotland participants who could be struggling to find work.  

Remploy have been working closely with JTC Furniture Group, one of Dundee’s largest employers, for four years, and have employed 29 Remploy participants through the Fair Start Scotland service – 14 of these in the last six months.  

Paul Freeman, JTC Furniture Production Manager, spoke of the continued success: 

“Our partnership with Remploy has hugely benefitted our company and has taken away the stress of the recruitment process. 

“Thanks to Remploy, we have more diverse applicants that might not have otherwise considered a career in manufacturing.”  

Established over 40 years ago, JTC Furniture Group are one of the UK’s leading fitted furniture manufacturers and thanks to our shared values, our relationship continues to thrive. As businesses, we share the same passion of offering people the chance to grow and progress, regardless of their barriers and background. 

Neil Bell, Remploy Account Manager in Dundee, said of the partnership:

“JTC Furniture Group are a great example of a local employer who understand what we are looking to achieve in helping secure sustainable employment for our participants.

“They share our value as an employer and are keen to attract a diverse workforce that represents the local community.”
