Gi Group UK launches ‘Skill-Up’ training course
Gi Group UK has launched ‘Skill-Up’, an initiative to help its new candidates learn new skills while looking for work.
‘Skill-Up’ is a free online training course available to all candidates who register with Gi Group and covers a range of topics including customer service, Microsoft Office (Excel, Word, Powerpoint, Outlook), time management, personal effectiveness, driver safety awareness, health & safety, communication skills and stress management.
Gi Group says the initiative supports its ongoing commitment to not only helping its candidates find suitable and meaningful work but helping them to develop their skills and achieve their career goals.
Gi Group UK’s head of employability, skills & learning, Kate Maddison-Greenwell, said, “It’s no secret that there is a skills gap in the industry at the moment and recruiters must play their part in ensuring that the workforce of the future have all of the vital tools they require to succeed in the world of work.
“Skill-Up is designed for that very reason – to give candidates the opportunity to learn new skills across a range of industries which will stand them in good stead for gaining long-term employment and going on to flourish in their chosen careers.”
