So this Skills Portal from New Anglia Growth Hub is designed to help our region’s employers access, understand and navigate all the local support, information and resources available to help get talent acquisition and development spot on. Plus, we have two dedicated skills advisers, available to make a no cost visit your premises to guide you through the options available.
