Skilled worker shortage severe and not just among electricians and plumbers according to Kelly Services
Kelly Services, global workforce solutions leader, today responded and agreed with the Electrical Contractors Associations concerns about the shortage of skilled workers such as electricians and plumbers and highlighted the plight of workers in other key sectors such as IT and Science.
Dominic Graham, Head of Professional and Technical at Kelly Services explains, Diane Johnson of the Electrical Contractors Association has highlighted a potential crisis for the UK. Not only is there a real shortage of skilled workers such as electricians and plumbers, but also a more far reaching crisis within the science and IT sectors.
He continues, Institutions, employers and the government need to act now in order to reverse this worrying trend and prepare the way for a new generation of employees called to the science and IT industries. I would advocate a collective approach to tackle the issue from science and ICT teachers and careers advisors to employers and recruiters, we all have a clear role to play in ensuring the skills pool doesnt dry up.
I would also like to see greater information provided to school leavers and those deciding on their university career path about the different opportunities and careers that are open to science candidates. Careers advisors have a significant role to play in imparting knowledge that could lead someone down a path they might never have considered, had they not had been told.
Dominic concluded, As an organisation, we feel passionate about this and have recently launched an initiative through Kelly Education Services which will see us going into schools across the UK to offer information on careers within specialist industries, highlighting the fastest growing sectors and discuss the necessary qualifications for these roles.
