Sci-Tech Daresbury is focused on delivering thousands of high-value jobs over the next 20 years by enabling science and technology companies on campus to readily access the talent and skills necessary to accelerate their growth and scale up. Two years ago this led to the campus establishing its Talent and Skills strategy, RADAR, to help Sci-Tech Daresbury companies attract, develop and retain the talent they need to meet their growth aspirations.
In practice this means helping employers develop close relationships with education and training providers, so they can readily tap into the talent they need when they need it. It also entails developing the management expertise and systems to implement training programmes and career development plans to develop and retain this talent.
The relationship that Sci-Tech Daresbury has facilitated between fast growing digital health company ORCHA and the University of Liverpool, is the perfect example of this approach in action.
