New Frontiers are delighted to announce that it has been chosen by the government to provide job search support for newly unemployed professionals. This new government initiative from the Department of Work & Pensions means that everyone referred to New Frontiers from the Job Centres will receive a fully funded Candidate Care Programme worth up to £100!
