Facilitated by the Energy & Utilities Skills Partnership the sector has worked together to provide access to a careers and job portal to increase visibility of employment options. 25 leading employers collaborate to support the Talent Source Network initiative which was founded to raise the profile of the sector and showcase the latest job opportunities.
Building on the success of 2019 and to continue to attract and inspire people to join our sector, Talent Source Network is changing its name to Energy & Utilities Jobs and will continue to position itself as THE go-to jobs board for the sector.
Being clear about what the platform does, is vital to ensure we provide a distinct signpost to candidates looking for jobs. Promoting the energy and utilities sector and attracting new and diverse people is paramount if we are to address the By renaming the platform to Energy & Utilities Jobs we directly state our purpose.
The new name is part of the ongoing strategy to raise the profile of the sector and attract the talent needed. The platform continues to showcase the diverse opportunities in the sector to all – not just those looking for entry level roles. Energy & Utilities Jobs is the jobs platform for the power, gas, water and waste companies in the UK.
Nick Ellins, Chief Executive of Energy & Utility Skills said;
“The last 3 years of proactive sector collaboration through the Talent Source Network platform has helped millions of people from diverse backgrounds to see utility job adverts in an inclusive way they can engage with. It has directly resulted in new talent joining from across genders, from BAME communities, from those with disabilities and from across our armed forces, helping the UK’s gas, power, water and waste management industries to do better business and better reflect the communities they serve. Changing the name to Energy & Utilities Jobs now moves this initiative from its pilot stage to become a mainstream source of employment, with the founding 25 utility-based employers spearheading the collaboration for the wider good of the whole UK sector.”
