Are you an employer?

Are you an Engineering, Manufacturing or Production Employer in Dorset?

Are you looking to expand your work force?

Could you support us by offering work experience, venues, or your invaluable expertise to assist us in the development of a skills training model?

If so, the New Directions team would love to hear from you.

It has been identified that whilst there is an increase in the number of Manufacturing & Engineering jobs in Dorset, there remains to be a skills gap in the local area. Many employers have reported they’re struggling to recruit trained and motivated staff. 

We would like to change that by offering a new programme named New Directions, funded by JP Morgan

The programme is being delivered by BCHA, in partnership with Dorset Engineering and Manufacturing Cluster (Dorset EMC). Our aim is to introduce specific sector employment opportunities, within Engineering and Manufacturing.

Val Jefferies is our committed Employee Engagement Officer who can be contacted on: 07966800234
