Contractors pivotal in addressing skills gap says giant group
Contractors will play a crucial role in filling the skills gap in Manchester, according to professional employment provider, giant group.
As the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce (GMCC) and the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) join forces to address pressing labour market challenges in the Greater Manchester region, giant argues more contractors will be needed in the interim.
With GMCC and the REC agreeing to collaborate on business, the professional employment provider advises that businesses in the area should not forget the value of this temporary resource in the development of the workforce.
Matthew Brown, CEO of giant commented, “As more businesses look to the emerging opportunities in and around Manchester, there will be a level of pressure on the talent pool in the area. The efforts by the REC and GMCC will go a long way in addressing the long term skills gaps, but the short term needs must also be fulfilled. The contracting community is a valuable tool that can not only fill immediate needs, but also build the teams required for future developments.”
