Introducing the UK's only on-line Skill & Expertise Exchange
Skill Exchange UK is a not for profit, totally independent strategy group; drawn from ACAS, TUC, Local Government Association, British Chambers of Commerce, in addition to supporting founders and a widening range of major employers such as Royal Mail, Veolia, Ulster Bank, Harland and Wolff and Michelin.
The aim of the exchange is to share skills and services through a more ‘joined up’ local and regional network. We want to better identify, manage and share skill, expertise, knowledge and resources between large and small organisations across all industries.
By better use of skills and experience, we aim to improve growth, increase productivity and gain mutual benefit for our members within their immediate local, regional and eventually national economies.
SKILL EXCHANGE UK
Driving Employment, Growth and Competitiveness, by promoting cost-efficient “Skill & Knowledge Recycling” through local authority, education and business collaboration across an on-line Skill Exchange.
The key objectives are to provide local HUBs & regional skill exchanges to:
• Connect local Employers and skilled professionals to communicate more
• Improve skills mobility, cut wastage and risk of redundancy
• Develop and share skills and expertise locally
• Share knowledge and experience between registered Members
• Champion new ways of working, utilise emerging talent
• Provide development & employment opportunities
• Generate and exchange new ideas
SKILL EXCHANGE UK (SKILL X UK) extends its aims and activity through its regional centres- each adding local community networks or 'HUBS' to stimulate initiatives amongst connected Members and creates white papers, press opinion as well as gather collective opinions, ideas & policy recommendations covering a variety of employment, skill retention, mobile and flexible working issues.
