Case Study: Value

Gloucester Services story

Gloucester Services on the M5 was created to offer sustainable jobs and income to local people, but they realised that some candidates with huge potential were not making it through the traditional interview process.  Working in partnership with Gloucestershire Gateway Trust, ‘Bridging the Gap’ was born, a free three-day pre-employment course.

The course offers participants help with CV writing, interview skills, as well as a chance to try out various roles on site and a guaranteed group interview at the end, which many find less daunting than the traditional one-to-one.



There’s just so much skill and experience out there that’s missed. Some of our recent candidates through Bridging the Gap filled some of our most difficult to recruit for vacancies and we’ve filled those gaps with great colleagues.
