Skills City

Our talent helps you to prosper

As a pioneering innovation hub, unlike any other, HOST provides talent on demand - a direct route for you to recruit and retain a highly skilled workforce.

Recruitment is expensive and time-intensive, but HOST makes this easy for you so that you can focus on growing your business and hitting your targets.

Recruiters typically charge between 20-30% of candidate's salaries. However, at no cost members can directly recruit from our talent pipeline of software engineers, cyber security technicians, network engineers and others to accelerate growth and resource projects.

As a talent powerhouse unique to our hub and the UK, HOST acts as a recruiter for our members to ensure that you have the skills and talent you need when you need it.

Laura Addison, Senior Programme Manager EMEA at AWS re/Start

My confidence was boosted by the academy and without their support, I think I would still struggle to get the kind of job in data and cloud computing that I wanted. Moving into a digital career was made possible by IN4.0 and has helped me to get a job I really want.
