The skills gap is a common issue we can all relate to. Whether it’s filling vacancies, hiring quality talent, or retaining staff, workplaces are currently experiencing a candidate shift.
As a result of this shortage, many companies are considering alternative routes to recruitment.
A couple of weeks ago, we hosted our Routes to Recruitment Event with Newcastle College, Baltic Apprenticeships, Tech Talent Ready, Durham University and TrueNorth. In case you missed it, here’s everything we learned.
As technology continues to advance, the demand for talented individuals continues to rise.
This misalignment between employers’ requirements and the actual qualifications of candidates has caused companies to face difficulties in filling essential roles, resulting in project delays and impeding their growth potential.
So, how do we fix the skills gap?
Veronica Spowart, Director of Digital and Creative Industries, explained the different pathways employers can find talent:
Skills bootcamps are collaboratively designed with local businesses, educational institutions, and governing bodies, to address local skills shortages and job openings.
Natalie Lamport, Skills Programme Specialist at Sunderland Software City, helps to deliver the programme and explains how it works:
Durham University is a world top 100 university and is best known for its partnerships with leading organisations.
Donna Carr, Work Based Learning Manager, explains how Durham University uses these connections to help the North East ecosystem.
To fill vacancies, it’s a good idea to work with a recruitment agency on a long-term basis so you can find talented individuals that meet the needs of your business all year round.
