Job: Skills Connector (Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Skills Hub)


Cornwall Development Company is currently recruiting for a Skills Connector to join the team in delivering Phase 2 of the European Social Fund-funded CIOS Skills Hub. Working on a one-to-one basis, our free, independent and impartial skills experts get beneath the skin of businesses, uncovering the skills they need now and in future, and introducing them to tailored training opportunities that produce real results.

Here at the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly (CIOS) Skills Hub we know that the smartest way to develop a business is to grow its people, giving them the skills that they need to help the business thrive. But with so many training schemes to choose from, finding the right options can be a minefield for business owners, and that’s why the Skills Hub is here to help.

If you can help employers identify their skills gaps and opportunities for increased productivity, and you have the knowledge to point them in the direction of the right, cost-effective training, then we would love to hear from you.

Our Skills Connectors are the principal point of contact for employers accessing the Skills Access Hub, undertaking training needs analyses (TNAs) and making appropriate referrals to a range of local and national skills initiatives and training providers. They also:

  • Develop and maintain comprehensive relationships with employer sectors and their representatives
  • Support the development of emerging sectors and promote the collaboration and networking of employers
  • Co-ordinate skills interventions with employers and to support the monitoring of their development/growth journey over an extended period of time
  • Represent the Skills Hub at events, seminars and workshops in order to raise awareness of its objectives
