Hands typing on a laptop

Following a commissioning period, we are pleased to announce that we will be working with Shared Future CIC and Reason Digital on a piece of work around developing an online employment support tool and reviewing the current Opportunities Hub

The GM Talent Match programme will draw to a close at the end of 2018 and we are keen to ensure that the programme has a longer-term legacy and all the great work involved in supporting young people towards employment continues.

To make sure we put the right plans in place to ensure the work is sustainable, our new partners will be carrying out a consultation. The consultation will collect people’s views about the needs and wants of an online employment support tool and will review our Opportunities Hub to determine whether it is fit for purpose. 

Marie Graham, Programme Manager of Greater Manchester Talent Match said, “We are pleased to be working with Shared Futures CIC and Reason Digital to look at the potential in developing an online employment support tool. We hope that it will be a great resource for professionals and young people beyond the life of the programme”

Our experience means we are ideally placed to deliver an inclusive, engaging and collaborative approach to the project”. Shared Future CIC is a not for profit organisation that is committed to community empowerment, social enterprise and democratic participation.
