About UsSkills Rocket - Launch Your Career Now
Skills Rocket founded by myself, Ian Benjamin, I’m an experienced recruiter & owner of Taylor & Faith Recruitment & Digital Execs.
Constantly hearing employers talk about their frustrations engaging with young adults about career opportunities and also speaking with young adults about their frustrations in finding the right career opportunity led me to producing a video called Interview Do’s and Don’ts that starred my own daughter as the HR Manager interviewing myself as the candidate. I turned up late, had the wrong attitude, demeanour, answering my mobile phone in the interview and not being prepared for the interview which regrettably is a common trait with young adults who are not aware of the required process, focus that is required to secure a job with a reputable employer.
Then, one of our video JobDescriptions was viewed by a member of a Government funded organisation, he liked the concept of using video to attract and engage with young adults as they watch videos daily on their smart phones, and use apps more a lot too. Skills Rocket was created shortly after, Bedfordshire has the first version with more Cities & Counties in the pipeline for a national roll out in the coming months.
It’s our vision to improve the career interest and engagement process for young adults while making the hiring process more current and seamless for employers at the same time, we are working tirelessly to achiest this with our Partner, universities affiliations with UKSUA and employers, training providers up and down the country.
