Ingeus and Deloitte joint venture prepares to bid for the DWP’s Work Programme

The Ingeus Deloitte joint venture is now positioned to bid for Work Programme contracts in these seven regions and to support the DWP to deliver a critical, national policy which will directly benefit thousands of individuals and the UK economy. The Work Programme will provide a single, integrated package of support to help unemployed people move into lasting work.

The seven regions, the maximum allowed by one supplier, are: London, the East of England, East Midlands, North West England, Yorkshire and the Humber, North East England and Scotland.

The Ingeus Deloitte joint venture’s selection as a preferred supplier in these seven regions reflects the commitment, depth of capability and track record of both companies to deliver large-scale, complex programmes. The joint venture combines Ingeus’ long-standing experience of delivering high-quality, customer-focused services in the welfare-to-work market with Deloitte’s extensive expertise in programme delivery, financial and supply chain management.

John Connolly, Senior Partner and Chief Executive of Deloitte, said: “I am delighted that the Ingeus and Deloitte joint venture has the opportunity to tender for such a critical, national programme and make a significant contribution to the economy.”

Greg Ashmead, Managing Director of Ingeus Global Operations, said: “I welcome the opportunity for Ingeus and Deloitte to put forward a truly ground-breaking proposition to the Department for Work and Pensions to deliver the new Work Programme and help many thousands of people into sustainable employment.”
