The number of vacancies for highly skilled ICT roles is increasing exponentially and the sector cannot meet this demand by recruiting from the traditional ICT talent pool alone. In order to bridge this skills gap, Telecommunication companies are seeking to upskill their existing workforce and recruit new talent from a much broader diversity group.
For this reason, the European social partners in the Telecom sector – UNI Europa together with the European Telecommunications Network Operators’ Association (ETNO), are embarking on a joint effort to review sectoral and academic best practice and develop a package of recommended initiatives that will enable digital upskilling to be embedded within the diversity group of their work population.
In the context of this project, UNI Europa and ETNO are recruiting external consultants to undertake the desk research phase to identify best practice in digital upskilling initiatives and resources and collate the results. The full details of the application process are available below. Please note that the application deadline is 17 March 2020. Tender specifications for subcontracting external expertise.
