Press release from: Pitman Training

London, United Kingdom (04 March 2011) - Pitman Training, a leading provider of secretarial, executive PA, touch typing and bookkeeping courses, have found that business managers in Manchester are now bypassing recruitment agencies and are opting to find highly trained, qualified staff from professional training schools.

Employers in Manchester are following the trend set by London businesses, and the tactic is paying off because they're finding staff with the most up-to-date skills and qualifications before their rivals - and saving thousands of pounds in the process.

Pitman Training Manchester, on Chorlton Street, offers secretarial training, bookkeeping and management training, as well as IT skills.

Keith Wymer owns Pitman Training Manchester, as well as two branches of the training company in London. He said: "In my London businesses we are constantly supplying newly trained and skilled people to companies.

"Not only does it save them money by not advertising or using recruitment agencies, but they can also be sure that candidates have the qualifications they're looking for. I'm surprised that Manchester hasn't taken advantage of this sooner."

Pitman Training certificates and diplomas are nationally recognised and are sought after by lots of companies. Many of the people who take a course with Pitman Training have recently been made redundant, are looking to change career, or simply wish to brush up on their skills.

Keith added: "Employers can only benefit from recruiting this way as they are getting freshly trained and qualified people without having to invest in training themselves."
