Alderwood Education: Recruiting the skills for the future
Launching September 2010, Alderwood Education, part of the AIM-listed Matchtech Group, is set to dominate the education recruitment market in sectors including Further Education and Work-Based Learning. With over 35,000 active education sector jobseekers already on the Matchtech database, it is anticipated that this number will swell to over 60,000 over the next 12 months, putting Alderwood among the top three agencies for recruitment in this specialized sector.
Expecting to be one of the major providers for jobseekers and employers by the end of its first year Alderwood Education aims to radically change the world of recruitment, providing both employers and jobseekers with an effective solution, using a highly trained and experienced team of professionals to find the best match. The business at launch will specialize in Further Education, Work-Based Learning and Employability & Welfare to Work Sectors.
The skills agenda in the UK is a high priority for Government and as such there is a great deal of opportunity for growth in this sector. Alderwood Education will offer the best facilitators to do this, creating better skills for better business and ultimately providing the qualities employers are looking for.
The Matchtech Group currently focuses on technical and professional recruitment and has enjoyed huge success matching over 7000 jobseekers with employment opportunities each year. After operating in the education market for over six years Matchtech took the decision to create a separate brand in order to build on its success in this field. Ambitious plans are in place for Alderwood Education and the business anticipates a national offering to be established quickly, along with branching out into other education-related fields further down the line.
Anton Roe, Director, says: The creation of Alderwood Education was a natural move for us, and will enable us to consolidate and build on our success in education and skills.
