Recognising the potential opportunities for jobs on other contracts, Serco’s Restart Scheme Employer Engagement team approached Logan Gray, contract manager for West Midlands Cycle Hire Scheme (WMCH) who hired the pre-screened job candidates from the Restart Scheme.

The scheme is part of the Government’s wider ‘Plan for Jobs’ programmes to help people develop their skills so they can find long-term meaningful employment.

Serco delivers the Restart Scheme in West Central England on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

Serco also operates the West Midlands Cycle Hire Scheme (WMCH) on behalf of Transport for West Midlands. The scheme’s bikes, e-bikes and e-scooters are available across the West Midlands in each of the seven cities and towns, and they are a quick and easy way to travel around the region.

The Serco Restart Scheme has also worked with a number of employers including the NHS, One Beyond and Starling Bank to fill vacancies.
