In 2015, a survey was undertaken by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES). UKCES found that “the highest density of skill-shortage vacancies was recorded in respect of Skilled Trades posts”. Two out of five job vacancies were due to a lack of skilled workers; this is why now is the best time to upgrade your career by switching to gas. Not only will you be doing a service to yourself, by increasing your earning potential, you’ll also be helping out the gas industry.
On hard-to-fill vacancies, “these were mainly due to a lack of skills, qualifications or experience”. An astonishing 69% of ‘hard-to-fill’ vacancies were due to applicants not having the required skills, qualifications or experience; G&E Training provides all the above.
