The Orbit Skills Team is here to help customers explore their options when it comes to employment and skills. We talk to a range of organisations who can provide services or opportunities that can help our customer with things like: personal development, gaining valuable work experience, skills and qualifications, or improving career prospects.
A Orbit, we want all of our customers to be able to reach their potential. The Skills Team are here to help you explore your options if you are looking for work, looking to change jobs, or if you want to progress within your current career. We will share details with you about great opportunities such as work experience, training, courses, apprenticeships, careers events and volunteering roles. You can find details of some of the exciting things available in your area on our Opportunities page.
If you can’t see anything that is right for you, or if you would like some further support, you can register for the Skills Programme and we will try to find opportunities that match your needs. If you choose, we can help you to apply and will keep in touch with you whilst you are on your placement or course to make sure everything is going well. To find out more, contact us and someone from the Skills Team will be in touch.
