To view the list of successful providers please click on the following link: www.dwp.gov.uk/supplyingdwp/what_we_buy/esfsuccessfulprovider DWP/Jobcentre Plus will be holding a series of Provider Networking Events in January 2008. The key purpose of these events is to introduce short-listed DWP ESF Prime contractors to potential delivery/sub-contractors. DWP/Jobcentre Plus can only generate an introduction between short-listed Prime contractors and potential delivery organisations; it remains entirely up to the parties involved as to whether this develops into a contractual relationship. A Provider Network Event will be held in each Jobcentre Plus District on the following dates in order to facilitate links between interested organisations: Cheshire, Halton & Warrington 7 January 2008 at Fir Grove Hotel, Warrington Contact: Les Cooper cheshireandhalton.esf2008networkingevents@jobcentreplus.gsi.gov.uk Cumbria & Lancashire 8 January 2008 at Lancaster House Hotel, Lancaster Contact: John Tuck Penrithba.esfnetwork2008@jobcentreplus.gsi.gov.uk Greater Manchester East & West  9 January 2008 at Bower Hotel, Chadderton Contact: Diane Dawson Diane.dawson@jobcentreplus.gsi.gov.uk Greater Manchester Central 10 January 2008 at Lancashire Cricket Club Contact: Steven Howard  Provider.networking-event@jobcentreplus.gsi.gov.uk Merseyside 11 January 2008 at Liverpool Football Club Contact: Joyce Thomas Runcorn.esfmerseyside@jobcentreplus.gsi.gov.uk Each event will start at around 9.30 am and finish at 2.00 pm, including a networking lunch.

Completed registration forms should be e-mailed to the relevant Jobcentre Plus District contact above by 5.00 pm on 12 December 2007. The agenda, details of the event location and Provider interest template will be e-mailed to attendees week commencing 17 December 2007. Please note: If you are interested in attending more than one event, multiple registration forms are required and should be returned to the appropriate Jobcentre Plus District contact. IMPORTANT: Early indications suggest that interest in attending these events will be high. Since venues can only accommodate a maximum number of delegates, the following principles will apply:

  • Registration on a first-come, first-served basis 
  • 1 delegate per organisation to ensure the maximum number of organisations which can be accommodated

For those of you who are unsuccessful in booking a space, you are still able to approach these potential Prime Contractors without DWP/Jobcentre Plus intervention. Booking Form
