The Future Skills Vision team
Future Skills Vision is embarking on an ambitious expansion strategy to not only scale up the business, but progress their mission to upskill the UK digital workforce.
Founded only 18 months ago, Future Skills Vision focuses on consultancy and training, providing businesses with practical support and advice around educational initiatives and creating an effective talent pipeline.
The business has doubled in size over the last six months and plans to expand into other regions during 2018.
The company have a core team of ten at its Newcastle based HQ and work with a wider team of associates to deliver their tailored and personalised services to its clients. FSV’s managing director, Holly Thompson is now driving national expansion after securing new clients across Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield.
She said: “Following our success in the North East, the North West is a natural progression for us. We intend to build on our localised ethos within each of these key areas by establishing a base and employing local people to support our clients most effectively, as these are the people who fully understand the eco-system that operates within each area - this is how our team really add value.
“Our clients are based predominantly within the Digital & technology sector due to the significant skills shortages and the nature of the roles required. This gives us the opportunity to work creatively with our clients, providing the most innovative solutions to the skills recruitment & issues they face”.
FSV are actively recruiting in Leeds, Manchester, Middlesbrough and Newcastle, with a focus on employing a diverse range of roles - including opportunities for apprenticeships, interns, graduates and experienced individuals.
Holly said: “Finding the right people is critical to our success in other regions - we are looking for people who are passionate about what we do and share our ethos and ambitions to make a difference to skills within the UK. This is an exciting time to join a fast-growing business, presenting amazing opportunities for the right people”.
FSV won the regional Start up Business of the Year Award at the FSB Awards and has now been shortlisted for the National Final taking place in London in May.
Holly continued: ‘’Key to any business success is building the right team and working together towards a common vision and purpose. We believe that has been key to our growth journey so far and the timing of appointments have also been critical’’.
FSV is built on forging collaborative partnerships and supporting a wide range of local initiatives and events. They are involved in two very exciting events in the next few months:
Newcastle Start-up Week, 14th to 18th May: Holly is speaking about FSV’s journey to date including the challenges she has faced along the way and what motivated her to keep going.
