Upskilling

If you are looking for some ways to get ahead, change careers or boost your CV, this is the post for you! 

We've collected some upskilling resources on free courses from a number of great providers.

Why it's worth your time? McKinsey reports that "nine out of ten UK employers are struggling to recruit the skills they need, and souht after skills tend to attract a premium". Many companies will need to reskill as they move towards more digital operations - by starting now, you can be ahead of the curve. Plus, even if the knowledge you gain isn't strictly relevant to the job you're in or applying for, learning new modes of thinking and an interest in keeping up to date with digital knowledge are both attractive qualitites to an employer.
