Here's what a free Employer Hub account can do for your business

We'll work with you to make sure your business gets the support it needs to thrive. Whether you'd like to use our Skills for Growth service, get help with redundancy or check out our online tools — we've got you covered.


Get started by making your free Employer Hub account. It'll only take you a few minutes to sign up, then you'll have access to our full range of support. If you're new to skills planning, we'd suggest you use the Skills Management tool first. It'll give you an initial, personalised skills action plan for your business.

  • Use our online skills tools – they don’t take long and you can save your progress. We've assessed more than 1000 businesses and know what drives success.

  • You’ll have access to Skills for Growth. Used by more than 1000 employers, it works like a diagnostic service for your business. Our team will help you maximise your business’ potential.

  • We’re developing a series of webinars. These will cover upskilling and reskilling, apprenticeships and skills management. Sign up to our email alerts and we’ll tell you when they drop.

Working with SDS and the Skills for Growth team was a very easy process. We ended up with a tailored plan for our needs.
