Jobs22 Call for Supply Chain Partners for DWP CAEHRS
Charity and social business Catch22 and Australian employment company Angus Knight have teamed up to create a new venture – Jobs 22 and are now looking to establish partnerships from across the UK.

Angus Knight provides employment and training for individuals and communities across Australia. Their hugely successful work with the charity Life without Barriers, uses technology and highly personalised support to help disabled people, and those with injuries, return to work. 

 Chris Wright, Chief Executive Officer of Catch22, said: 
“Catch22 has a strong track record of delivering employability contracts and working with vulnerable communities to help them find work. This new venture allows us to take our local knowledge and experience in delivery and the expertise of Angus Knight, to help rescue the thousands of people who find themselves jobless in the current climate.”
