“New Directions was set up in 1994 to help signpost people into employment. The business has grown remarkably over the past couple of decades, and has changed to reflect the needs of recruitment and training trends. Our operation now exists across twelve UK cities and towns.
“Our aim is to embed ourselves in the communities we work within. By becoming a partner to key markets we can best understand their needs. We have evolved our offer to include a training department to help businesses up skill their employees as well as offering a bespoke recruitment service.
“Throughout all of the markets we work within – education, social care, domiciliary care, pharmaceutical and the commercial sector we aim to become a supplier of choice.
“New Directions is successful as an organisation because of our people. We employ individuals who are experts within their field. We also invest in developing our staff to enhance what they already bring to the business.
“Over the past few years our teams have been celebrated for their work within their respective communities. From our Compliance Team being celebrated at an international awards ceremony as ‘Best Compliance Team’ – an accolade formerly won by Google and Orange to our Education team being named as ‘Supplier of the Year’ at the National Procurement Awards for a second successive year. We are proud of all our staff and what they contribute to making the recruitment and training sector a more vibrant place to work”
In 2016 we launched onlinedbs.co.uk – a fast, affordable criminal record checking service. We worked with the Ministry of Justice to develop a safe functional service that ensures quality checks at affordable prices.
