INTOO providing a range of Outplacement Support as Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games invests in jobs & skills legacy

Birmingham 2022 appointed Gi Group in 2020, INTOO UK & Ireland’s parent brand as Official Recruiter for the Commonwealth Games, to help find 1,500 people, to join the team planning and delivering the biggest sports and cultural event ever to be held in the West Midlands.

As part of Gi Group’s appointment, INTOO UK & Ireland were also appointed as the Official Outplacement Services Supplier for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. It will be supporting the employees who have been recruited specifically to deliver the Games to transition their skills into new and exciting careers once the Games comes to an end on 8 August and the Cultural Festival programme ends in September.

Recognising that this is a finite project, the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee wishes to ensure support is available to all those working tirelessly to deliver the largest sporting event the West Midlands has ever seen.

Providing outplacement support aligns with the objective of continued commitment to its jobs and skills legacy – particularly across Birmingham and the West Midlands – by helping employees to transfer their careers and skills into new roles in the region.

Starting in Spring 2022, INTOO UK & Ireland is providing a range of outplacement support delivered through in-person and virtual workshops along with face-to-face coaching sessions with additional online support to help employees prepare for new opportunities.

This support includes helping employees to identify their transferable skills, uncovering local opportunities and ensuring they are ‘market ready’ to continue their careers once the curtains come down on the Closing Ceremony.

Managing Director of INTOO UK & Ireland, Owen Morgan, said: “We are proud to be working as the Official Outplacement Services Supplier for Birmingham 2022. Full credit must go to the Organising Committee for recognising the hard work and talent of all the individuals who have dedicated several years of their careers to ensuring the smooth running of the Games – and appointing a specialist outplacement services supplier to support their transition. We look forward to helping them take this dynamic, high-profile experience and additional skills they have acquired and use it as a springboard into the next phase of their career.”

Director of Human Resources for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, Clare Miles, said:
“Our brilliant team is the heartbeat and the driving force behind the most exciting Commonwealth Games yet – delivering an incredible 11 days of sport and the biggest cultural spectacle the West Midlands has ever seen. The team is diverse, talented and have the unique Birmingham 2022 experience under their belt, all great assets they will take with them to their next employer. We are excited and committed to supporting our colleagues, with a range of outplacement services, provided by INTOO from Gi Group, to help make those connections and prepare them for that next chapter, beyond the Games.”
