One of the UK and Ireland’s largest business services providers delivering Government programmes across welfare, skills and apprenticeships, justice and public services is to sponsor the Essex Digital Awards 2016.

Seetec, an Essex based organisation, has been supporting hundreds of thousands of people back to work and improving their skills for over 30 years.

They recently launched the new Seetec Skills Academies and work in partnership with local businesses to help young people gain the practical skills they need to establish a successful career through traineeships and apprenticeships.

Opportunities for career development are available in three main industries; Business, Service and Digital. Aptly, Seetec Skills will sponsor the “Use of Social Media for Business” category at EDA16.

Seetec also supports employers with recruitment, training, advice and IT solutions.

Sean Purcell, National Operations Director at Seetec Skills, explained why his organisation is keen to get involved with EDA 16, which culminates with the Presentation Evening on April 14 at Weston Homes Community Stadium, in Colchester.

He said: “Seetec Skills are excited to sponsor the Use of Social Media for Business category at the Essex Digital Awards 2016.

“More and more businesses are recognising the significant value in inspirational use of social media for marketing and customer engagement.

“In turn this award recognises high achievement against such broad competition as can be found in the rapidly changing social media landscape.

“We know from our 30 years’ experience that employers must continually develop and utilise the full range of skills in their workforce to remain competitive.

“Seetec Skills is passionate about working with employers to fill their skills gaps through in-work training, turning talented staff into the business leaders of tomorrow.”

The Essex Digital Awards is the first and only scheme exclusively dedicated to celebrating the online achievements of businesses, charities and schools from across the county.

Entry for EDA16 closes on February 19.

Andy Pritchard from the EDA team declared he is “very excited” about the having Seetec Skills on-board.

He added: “For more than 30 years Seetec has been helping people improve their life chances and helping Essex businesses up-skill their existing workforce.
“Their mission sits extremely well with us and we’re thrilled they have chosen to get involved with the Awards.”
