Telecoms

Demand for talent within the Telecoms sector has never been greater, yet the skilled talent pool is getting smaller. 

The demand is being driven by: 

  • A national imperative of 5G access for the majority of the population by 2027. 
  • 15million more premises to be connected to full fibre by 2025.  
  • The building of this network by 2025. 
  • That 87% of IT and telecoms employees want to upskill.  
  • The need of Learning and Development Talent Managers who are hard at work, competing to attract skills.  

An apprenticeship programme is an affordable way to grow your own talent, whether you are a levy paying organisation or not. 

ESP is a BT/OpenReach preferred training partner with a track record of delivering over 3,700 Telecoms Field Operatives.

Our Telecoms Field Operative (Level 2) Apprenticeship gives Telecoms companies a professional foundation qualification to grow their future teams on.

Retail

With over 285,000 retail outlets and 2.9 million employees, the Retail sector is one of the biggest employers in the UK.  

In a tight economy, retailers look to build an inclusive workforce, which is innovative, highly skilled and are committed to recruiting and retaining talent benefiting both operational costs, but also scaling automation across the organisation. 

We have training partnerships with some of the UK’s best-known retailers on the high street who are running apprenticeships such as: 

Supply chain and logistics

Despite the end of furlough, the labour market has held up remarkedly well and unemployment is unlikely to rise significantly, according to BoE. 

With a tighter labour market, there are already signs of increasing skills demands, rising competition, leaving companies struggling to attract and retain skilled workers. 

The hardest positions to fill globally and in the UK are operations and logistics positions. (2022, ManpowerGroup survey) 

Together with our industry specific coaches we are supporting companies in this sector through bespoke training solutions to upskill, reskill and build greater and stronger talent pools.  Some of our industry specific courses are:
