Diversity and different perspectives can bring innovation and fresh ideas, so keeping a workforce representative is important and beneficial. There are two main ways employers can become involved in supporting CRUMBS trainees and benefit from a truly rewarding experience that also makes business sense.
Hosting a CRUMBS trainee for a work placement is a great experience for the trainee and the employer. The trainee gains practical workplace experience, which supplements their learning at CRUMBS, and the employer can support a disadvantaged person to learn and experience something new.
We work with businesses in a range of commercial environments with work placements varying in length to suit both the organisation’s and the trainee’s needs. Our trainees have recently completed work placements at BCP Council, Julia’s House, and Winton Park Café and we always welcome further work placement opportunities for trainees to learn from local employers.
A job trial can be a great way to broaden your team, whilst offering the CRUMBS trainee a unique learning opportunity. We will match potential trainees to suit the needs of your organisation and the job role being recruited.
You will gain a team member with genuine interest and relevant skills for your business. Job trials can vary in the length and wages will only be payable for employment after the job trial period has been completed. Please contact us to discuss how we can work together.

Through the CRUMBS Snak-Pak service we provide boxes of snacks and refreshments (including cakes, flapjacks, chocolate bars, dried fruit, crisps and energy bars) to local organisations including factories, offices and medical centres.
The Snak-Pak boxes are delivered fortnightly with an ‘honesty box’ for payment.
The boxes are tailored to the preferences of the organisation (including catering for specific dietary requirements).
