Hitesh Lawda, 36, from Rushey Mead, was one of those taken on.
He said: "After graduating from uni in London I worked down there for about 10 years. I lost my last job as an estate agent when the housing market turned sour.
"My family and I decided to move back to Leicester, but I found it hard to find permanent employment. I was referred to Intraining and after about eight months I secured the position at Carrington Carr.
"I'm enjoying my role as a telemarketer and am so pleased that through the Work Programme I have been able to secure a permanent role and provide for my family in today's climate."
Sarah Berry, 22, from Melton, who was taken on as an administrator had been unemployed since leaving Brooksby Melton College in 2010.
