Essex Opportunities Portal launched to help people upskill and find employment

Essex County Council is launching the Essex Opportunities Portal, a virtual one stop shop to provide the local community and businesses with information and advice around skills, careers, training, and employment opportunities.

Essex County Council has been working in partnership with South Essex College, Southend-on-Sea Borough Council, local businesses and other training providers to create this new information, advice, and guidance portal.

South Essex College is featured on the site as a training provider with course listings. Plus the college is also featured in the employer showcase section with information on further education teaching as a career option.

The portal can be accessed here. 

The college is also featured in the portal launch video which you can view here. 

The portal is part of Essex County Council's Covid-19 economic recovery plan to help residents find employment and upskill. The portal also offers information for businesses on recruitment, training, and business support.

The portal also allows people to explore careers, discover Essex’s biggest industries, new sectors, future job roles, and join virtual experiences of the world of work.
