SkilledPeople.com works to help employers achieve Diversity in the workplace by showcasing the talents of jobseekers aged over 50.

We are a small, independent company run on social enterprise principles. Our directors are all aged over 50 and have experienced the challenge of achieving business expansion with limited resources and trying to find new employment after the age of 50.

Skilledpeople.com connects businesses who want to expand and improve with skilled, experienced people aged over 50 who add value and quickly become productive.

Companies that embrace age diversity and employ people across a range of ages typically perform better than those that adopt a narrow approach to recruitment. Studies by organisations such as BMW, Accenture and McDonald's have shown that diversity is not just 'nice to have', it delivers measurable bottom-line benfits in terms of cost saving and profit growth.

We specialise in supporting recruitment campaigns by employers to achieve better age diversity within their organisations. All the evidence shows that an inclusive recruitment policy with a diverse range of employees creates more successful companies.

To see the range of services that we offer employers to help them promote jobs to older workers, please go to the Employers Zone.
