Introducing our new delivery partner, Optima-UK

Leicestershire based training and recruitment consultancy, Optima-UK will be delivering health and wellbeing support for GREAT Project participants.

Optima UK, the Enderby-based training, recruitment, and business consultancy, is about to begin to deliver its part of a GREAT Project programme to get Leicestershire people ready for work and training.

As a GREAT Project partner, Optima will be delivering health and wellbeing support by providing a confidential and impartial service to participants on the project who have any health and wellbeing concerns, which they feel may be preventing them from moving into work or training.

The GREAT Project team manager Chantal Brotherhood remarks:

We are very pleased to announce our new partnership with Optima UK. In 2020, both employment and wellbeing have been two areas particularly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. To help local families potentially impacted by both is a great step forward. We’re looking forward to delivering wellbeing services with Optima in 2021.”

In addition, Optima is providing, where needed, advice, support and onward referral to additional healthcare or support services.

Leading on behalf of Optima is Senior Training Consultant Rachel Nott, who joined the business five months ago, bringing with her more than 20 years of experience of working in person-centred roles dedicated to providing the best possible customer experience.

Rachel said:

“We’re extremely proud to be helping people prepare themselves for the world of work or training, and particularly in the very important but often overlooked field of health and wellbeing. At Optima, we have a fantastic team of highly-experienced people with various backgrounds who are able to guide people and help them develop and carry out fulfilling roles.”

Optima UK offers a range of training and development courses for individuals, public sector organisations, and for commercial businesses.

Funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund, GREAT is delivered by Voluntary Action LeicesterShire (VAL).
