A new digital skills programme has just been launched

A new digital skills programme has launched to connect local businesses with talented jobseekers. Jointly funded by West Sussex County Council and the West Sussex Districts and Boroughs, the programme aims to reduce unfilled digital job vacancies, support upskilling to help local people get digital jobs, and highlight the increasing opportunities that West Sussex offers for those with digital skills.

More than 20 events will be held across the county in 2023. A roadshow of pop-up information hubs in town centres, beginning in January 2023 and running through the year will connect jobseekers, those seeking a career change, graduates and students with trainers and businesses to showcase the opportunities available. Interactive roadshows will support recruitment drives and allow jobseekers to learn more about the growing number of digital jobs in West Sussex.

This programme will be led by local strategic consultancy Always Possible further details can be found here https://www.alwayspossible.co.uk/news-west-sussex-launches-digital-skills-campaign/

They are also looking for three business ambassadors across the County to support the programme. The deadline for any interested businesses is Friday 18th November.
