Dear Candidate,

I am delighted that you have expressed an interest in applying to be the Senior Policy Manager at WorldSkills UK. We hope that you find the information in this candidate brief and on our website useful: https://www.worldskillsuk.org/

At WorldSkills UK, we have big ambitions to help the next generation, our education system and the economy.

We are working to help create a world-class further education system that tackles vocational snobbery head on, so more young people get better opportunities and are not written off because going to University isn’t right for them.

As an employer ourselves we aim to be truly inclusive, offering a hybrid and collaborative working culture. We pride ourselves on having a flexible approach to our working practices and are happy to discuss flexible working options with suitable candidates. Although operating from a London-based headquarters, we welcome applications from candidates across the UK and will always consider requests to work from other locations on a case-by-case basis subject to business requirements.

Join us, if you are ambitious to shape the future of further education, change lives and help create a world-class economy for the UK. Because when young people succeed, we all succeed.

For a confidential conversation with Thewlis Graham Associates who are managing the process, please contact Sarah Thewlis, Managing Director on 0207 850 4781 or email applications@thewlisgraham.com.  Sarah will be happy to discuss this opportunity with you and answer any questions you may have.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Neil Bentley-Gockmann OBE
