Find out more below about how the Employment and Training Hub can support you as an employer.

The Hub can help you to:

  • Find new employees through a talent matching service. Tell us your recruitment needs and we will find and introduce you to candidates suitable for the role and support you with shortlisting and interviewing.
  • Access to bespoke training. We can work with you to develop and host a bespoke training package tailored to meet the needs of your business, including Sector Based Work Academies to meet requirements for a range of sectors.
  • Access support to hire a new apprentice. We can talk you through the process of taking on your first apprentice or additional apprentices, help you find a suitable candidate and access funding.
  • Help to identify skills gaps within your business. You could access funded support to help pin-point your business’s skills needs, navigate your options, and access further training, or support needed to grow.
  • Get support to up-skill existing staff. We can help you build a stronger workforce by helping employees gain skills that match your business needs.
  • A virtual offer, through a website and social media channels to engage, promote and signpost
  • Access support for employees who are at risk of or facing redundancy. Refer staff to the Employment Hub where we can support them in finding alternative employment.
  • Access to space. We have flexible spaces available to accommodate all your training and recruitment needs, ranging from 1-1 interview rooms to venues for recruitment fairs.
  • To volunteer as a mentor for people looking for practical careers advice or looking to start their own business.
