A revamped platform offering a one-stop-shop for people looking for jobs, training or employment support across Greater Manchester has been launched.

EmployGM is being delivered by The Growth Company on behalf of GMCA and will signpost people to a host of local support across the 10 boroughs of Greater Manchester. Information on local training and skills courses, employment support programmes, vacancies in the city-region, help with job applications and CV writing, money and health support and much more will be available via the website.

Though EmployGM has been available since 2020, the launch – also a Mayoral commitment – marks a complete overhaul of the platform, which further benefits residents by bringing resources together in one place and making navigating careers much easier.

The Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham said: “Greater Manchester is a thriving and vibrant city-region offering a plethora of opportunity for people living and working here and beyond.It’s important we make finding these opportunities as easy as possible so that people are in no doubt about how they can progress in their careers or find new ones.

“EmployGM has evolved significantly, mirroring the pace at which our city-region’s economy is also growing. It’s about more than finding jobs, the site also supports our efforts to ensure people’s skills match our labour market need by providing information about tailored training opportunities and careers guidance.”
