We are proud to be a recruitment partner for the Fast Futures programme. The initiative is a national, joint project with Avado and leading global businesses, providing essential real-world skills to education leavers aged 18-22. Seeking diverse and equal representation in the candidate application process.
500,000 plus young people are due to leave education this year. During an international pandemic it is highly likely to have a negative impact on their job prospects, particularly with the cancellations of internships and apprenticeship programmes.
At the same time, the UK is also experiencing a shortage of digital and tech skills that businesses need to compete on the international stage. The programme will equip young learners with the business skills UK organisations need to get them job ready, and help to limit the impact of COVID-19 on the UK economy.
With a focus on recruiting candidates from a diverse background, we aim to provide 1000 young people from all walks of life, with a free 12-week training course of vital tech and digital business skills, that helps bridge the gap between education and full-time employment.
“Broadgate Search is part of Trinnovo Group. We are delighted to be supporting the ground breaking Fast Futures programme as a delivery partner. Giving young people from a wide range of background the opportunity not just to gain skills but skills employers really value. This programme invests in a more inclusive economy, focused on digital and unleashing young people’s talent despite the potential economic impact of COVID. This programme is backed by some of the leading businesses in the UK and aims to reach under represented groups and target those who need it most. Aligning with our core mission of ‘building diverse teams that represent the world we live in.” – CEO, Ashley Lawrence
