Skilledpeople.com supports employers who have an inclusive approach to recruitment and want to have a diverse workforce containing people of all ages.
With a greater appreciation among employers of the benefits of age diversity, ie. having a good mix of ages within a workforce, Skilledpeople.com makes it easy and economical for employers to find great people aged over 50 to work for them.
Skilledpeople.com helps jobseekers with great work experience and know-how to find new work opportunities. Candidates registering on our site usually have at least 20 years’ occupational experience but many have more than 30 years.
As experience comes with age, the majority of our registered candidates are aged over 45 with a concentration aged 50 to 59. The range of people extends from Managing Directors to administrators covering all industries and occupations.
Recruiters can see the calibre of our candidates by using the Quick Search at the top of this page.
Our jobseekers come from a wide range of backgrounds ranging from people who have always provided administrative and secretarial support to CEOs, directors and consultants.
A number of new members have operated in the public sector at senior levels but are now looking to transfer their skills to the private sector.
We encourage employers to support diversity in the workplace byinterviewing and recruiting experienced older applicants because they have qualities not found in more junior staff. They are:
• more reliable
• require less training
• become productive faster
• better able to mentor and support other staff
