Greater Manchester Talent Match

Greater Manchester Chamber is committed to supporting initiatives to tackle the skills shortage problem head on, in practical, useful, workable ways.

We will be working with Greater Manchester Talent Match to build relationships between local employers and ‘Employment Support Host Organisations’, including Talent Coaches, to provide local opportunities and jobs for young people across Greater Manchester. The Greater Manchester Talent Match programme will run throughout 2018 and we are keen to ensure that the programme has a longer-term legacy.

The partnership will also see the Chamber sourcing opportunities for young people, including six employer visits, and sharing research on new employers and growth sectors in each borough of Greater Manchester.

Marie Graham, Programme Manager of Greater Manchester Talent Match, said: “We are very excited to be working with the Chamber. By building relationships with employers throughout Greater Manchester, we hope that this partnership will create even more valuable opportunities for young people and contribute to a strong legacy for the Greater Manchester Talent Match programme moving forward.”

Joy Sewart, Head of Skills Development at the Chamber, said: “As the UK’s Chamber of the Year 2017/18, we are delighted to be awarded this important contract, which will give employers the chance to offer new career prospects to young people aged 18-24. We look forward to raising the profile of Greater Manchester Talent Match across our Greater Manchester business base this year and beyond.”
