With more than 2 million people anticipated being out of work by end of 2009, the job marketplace has got even more competitive with around 20 applications for 1 job, this is certainly a client's market. As a way of offsetting the unprecedented levels of redundancies the government is providing funding for training.
This is an opportunity to stay active and up-to-date with the latest developments and techniques, i still personally feel the government can do more for people seeking employment and a recent article in the guardian concured as it reported that the UK showed the lowest confidence out of all the leading world economies. Nonetheless, there is help out there and training is a start.
Capital Training, sister company to Capital Engineering Personnel and part of the Capital Group offers access to training, in some cases FREE depending on your eligibility. For further details feel free to contact us on 020 8605 2800.
There are also benefits for businesses taking part with certain schemes offering financial incentives. As an individual, you are likely to be more competitive when being considered for a position if you remain active, either you freelance on a short term basis or go on a training course that is relevant to your industry. This is more likely to open doors of opportunity than close them
Over the next few days we will be listing some of our training courses on this forum.
