Maximus secures leading position on UK Government’s employment support framework
Maximus has secured an industry-leading position on the new UK Government Commercial Agreement for the Provision of Employment and Health Related Services (CAEHRS) framework, winning a place in all six areas in which it bid.
The framework will be used by the UK Government for contracting national employment support programmes, with an estimated £7.5bn of procurement expected over the next five years.
The framework is split between Tier 1, for larger-scale employment and health-related programmes, and Tier 2, for smaller and likely more specialised programmes.
Maximus secured Tier 1 results in the Central, London and Home Counties, North East, North West and Scotland, as well as a place on Tier 2 in Wales and a position in the national lot for country-wide contracts.
Maximus is one of the largest and highest performing employment support providers in the country, operating at scale across England, Scotland and Wales, supporting more than 250,000 people into work.
To develop solutions that deliver support to those who need it most, including young people and those needing to transition to new sectors, Maximus UK has developed a unique set of partnerships with some of the country’s leading recruiters, skills providers, self-employment specialists and digital transformation organisations, to enhance the delivery of employment and health related services in the UK.
Our key partners will work alongside more than 250 of our new and existing specialist and local partners to co-design innovative solutions to meet the UK’s employment and skills challenges.
Paul Williams, Division President of Maximus UK, said:
“Our success on the framework positions us well to use our expertise to help people and address the labour market challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
