Strong Skills Team set to be strengthened further
Warwickshire County Council's strategy and commissioning manager (economy and skills) Alison Robinson is "very proud" of the work her Skills Team does to support businesses.
It is a "very strong" group, she says, which is going to be strengthened still further in the coming weeks.
Fay Winterburn's six strong team is facing rapidly increasing demand as businesses start to return to normal and look to recruit. So the County Council is investing further in the Skills Team and their vital work to support the business community.
"Already this year we made three really strong, creative additions to the team which means we are very well placed to deliver more projects to benefit more businesses," said Alison.
"We have got the team in place at just the right time as we are seeing an increase in enquiries as business confidence is starting to return. A very strong team is being assembled and there are a few more roles still to be added before we’re fully up to strength.
"The skills agenda is becoming more and more important as the economy rebuilds from such a difficult year. Skills will be a key element of the post-pandemic recovery and ongoing economic development and I am so proud that we have a team in place which is capable of, and so committed to, giving businesses the support they need.
"I am very proud of the business support work the team is already delivering under the brilliant leadership of Fay, whose recent recognition of receiving a High Sheriff Award was so deserved."
