Part of Hays’ portfolio of services, Skills and Learning is an exciting new initiative that helps people reach their full potential and advance their careers.

We’ve completely re-imagined the traditional hire-train-deploy model, creating transformative paid job opportunities through our Skills and Learning Academies.

We believe in coaching, mentoring and training undiscovered talent, focusing on reaching those high-potential individuals in hard to access places, built on our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

That’s why we recruit people based on ability, rather than experience.  So, even if you’ve little to no prior work experience - or have worked in a totally different field - our academy empowers you to successfully explore different and new career opportunities.

Our goal is to create a learning environment that is inclusive to all. We actively look for people from different backgrounds and professions because we know that such diversity fuels innovation and creates a richer learning experience.
