Employment and skills in Newark and Sherwood

Free pre-employment training programme for employers

We provide a free pre-employment training programme to employers with job vacancies.  A bespoke training programme is developed based on the employer’s skills requirements to help ensure candidates have an awareness of a given sector and work areas. As part of this process all candidates will be pre-screened on behalf of the employer.  The only thing an employer has to offer in return is guaranteed interviews. As well as the pre-employment training programme we host regular jobs fairs to enable employers to promote their vacancies free of charge.

Employment and Skills Group

Newark and Sherwood has a dedicated Employment and Skills Group that brings together delivery partners to support individuals that are out of work to secure sustainable employment; support employers with their recruitment and skills needs and link education with business to help mould our future workforce.
