Boosting employment opportunities for local people

April 26, 2022

Portsmouth City Council’s employment programmes support individuals and local business to boost skills and employment opportunities.

We are currently working in partnership with the Industrial Services team at PSI Global Recruitment based in Portsmouth Naval Base. They have set up the PSI Training Academy to shorten the skills gap currently seen throughout the construction industry by upskilling current employees and investing in the future of young people locally.  Our team supports prospective individuals with pre-employment training and rights to work documentation.

To date PSI have placed 73 local workers in a variety of trades including Scaffolders, Blasters, Industrial Painters, Electricians, Cleaners, UHP Operatives, and various Admin roles. Developing local employment opportunities helps to reduce employee turnover and improve reliability alongside real career development opportunities.

Out team at the council supports prospective individuals with pre-employment training and rights to work documentation.
