Changes are coming – find out more at our fully funded workshop

As you may already be aware, the transition to Universal Credit will impact many people, including those employed on lower pay scales or zero hour contracts. We have recently run sessions covering the impact these changes will have on service users and care staff, but what about recruiting people to lower pay scale or zero hour contract roles?

You may need to answer a candidates questions about how taking up the role you’re recruiting for could impact their benefits, or you may just want to brush up your knowledge on the subject so you feel better informed. We’re running the last of our three fully funded study days on Thursday 24th May between 9.30am – 12pm at Beales Hotel in Hatfield and will cover how Universal Credit could impact recruitment for your organisation and what you need to know.

To learn more about Universal Credit please read below, or to book your place on the next study day now please follow this booking link.

What is Universal Credit?

Universal Credit is replacing a range of means-tested benefits paid to working-age people and replaces benefits such as working tax credit, child tax credit and housing benefit for lower-paid workers.

It is not just for people who are out of work or with ill-health. Changes in hours or rates of pay from one month to the next will almost immediately affect your employee’s Universal Credit.

It is already in place for new claims across half of Hertfordshire and will be in place for the rest of the county by the end of 2018.

Join us on 24th May to learn more.
