GEM Partnership has announced a key appointment which will enhance the services it offers clients, providing them with a single solution to their recruitment and training needs.

Alison Golsworthy-Miller joins the company as Business Development Consultant with over 25 years’ experience within training, recruitment and business development.

The appointment is seen as a major addition to the GEM Partnership group, which includes GEM Premium People, GEM Training, GEM Professional Services and GEM Talent Search.

Alison’s remit is to support companies with their training and recruitment requirements with a major focus on the Government’s Apprenticeship Levy, and to ensure they’re receiving the right advice and guidance to maximise their share of the levy.

Cheshire-born Alison, who is married and has one grown up daughter, said: “I have worked within the training, recruitment and business development sectors for many years and I now believe I am in my perfect role.

“My role means I can support businesses to grow either through upskilling of current workforces, new apprenticeships into business to support long term succession planning, recruiting key personnel or supporting via temporary workforce and giving people opportunity through pre-employment training.

“For me it’s all about partnership working and giving businesses the right advice and support – it has to fit with their priorities and that’s a key thing not just for me but for GEM Partnership.”

GEM Partnership offers bespoke recruitment support to businesses to help them attract the right people for both their short and long term requirements and offers tailored training to people with the primary objective of placing them into work.

Everything is driven around talent matching and working with both the company and individual to ensure that the candidates with the right skillset are available to fill client vacancies.

Maria Miller, Operations Director at GEM Partnership, said: “We are delighted to have secured the services of someone as experienced as Alison.

“Alison is driven by a desire to support businesses and with her experience and expertise within the training and recruitment industries, she is enabling us to provide a complete solutions package to our vast portfolio of clients.”
