Opportunities South East
We are delighted to announce the launch of our latest implementation of SignedUp in partnership with South East LEP and Thurrock Council. The platform – Opportunities South East – will facilitate joined up employability and skills services for the benefit of employers, education providers, citizens and the wider economy. It will do this by acting as a central platform for the publication, management and consumption of local employability and skills services.
We created SignedUp on the premise that local employability and skills services could benefit enormously from technology that facilitates better joined up working. Opportunities South East will do exactly that, by giving providers of services an existing platform on which to showcase and manage their services. Schools, charities, colleges and more will be able to create an account and run services like work experience, mentoring and different membership clubs. At the same time, employers will be able to sign up and post their employment opportunities free of charge. All of this and much more means when a citizen signs up to the platform they can engage with a wide variety of local services without having to enrol on multiple complex systems. It also negates the need for providers of services to each purchase their own IT system for the management of the services they provide.
