Charles Darwin said….


“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change”

If there is one thing the last fifteen months has taught everyone it’s to be adaptable to change. This is true of businesses and individuals.

Over the seven plus years Growing Talent has run, it has continually evolved and adapted to be as efficient, robust and exceed expectations for all involved.

Now we have adapted again to the new ways of working many employers are evolving to.

For the first time we will be running a virtual Growing Talent in Birmingham for an employer who wants to secure eight Support Specialists for their Centre of Excellence team. Not only will the selection, orientation and holistic elements be virtual but the permanent roles themselves will be too.

Another adaptation is the individuals selected by the employer will be employed in their permanent jobs from the start. There will be no weekly appraisals. The orientation and holistic elements will be delivered to employees – not unemployed people with provisional job offers.

Monday sees a virtual meeting with JobCentre Plus specialists in Birmingham to take this forward.

The employer is keen to engage new, diverse talent to deliver fresh thinking to their operations.

If we weren’t before, one thing is for certain. It’s critical we all become adaptable to change.
