HLSM partners

HLSM will help you define, obtain and retain the skills and talent your business needs to grow

There is a growing gap, locally and across the UK, between the skills SMEs need and the skills job applicants have. HLSM will work with local SMEs to find short and long term solutions to their specific business skills requirements, and those of the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership *(GBSLEP) Area.

How will you benefit from Higher Level Skills Match?

Collaborate with HLSM and you will have access to an Account Manager who will help you define the skill-set your SME requires. Your HLSM Account Manager will then work with you to match your needs to work-ready and highly skilled local graduates, ensuring you obtain the talent you need to drive your business forward.

Your HLSM collaboration will also give you access to a range of training and development opportunities for you and your employees, enabling you to boost your company’s skills and maximise growth potential.

Your Account Manager will co-ordinate your HLSM collaboration from start to finish, simplifying your search and saving you time.

Your HLSM Account Manager will help you:

  • Define the skill-set your SME needs to grow
  • Match your needs to highly skilled graduates
  • Ensure your SME obtains the talent it requires
  • Find training for you and your employees
  • Co-ordinate your HLSM collaboration

Is there a fee for using HLSM?

Just a small amount of your time. HLSM is part-funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) to support SME growth and employability within the GBSLEP Area. As an eligible SME operating within this area, there is no financial cost to your business.

Who has created the Higher Level Skills Match?

Birmingham City University, Aston University and Newman University have partnered to create HLSM, with the support of Cannock Chase, Lichfield and Tamworth local authorities.

This partnership enables your search for the right skill-set to reach a broader range of graduate talent, with access co-ordinated and simplified by your HLSM Account Manager.
