At Auctus Management Group, we are committed to tackling unemployment in the West Midlands. We understand how socioeconomic factors can have a detrimental impact on a region’s unemployment rate. People do not have enough disposable income to invest in commodities supplied by local high street retailers, resulting in bleak economic prospects.

This leads to abandoned buildings and an inflow of pound, betting, and charity businesses, which is not indicative of a healthy economy. The impact on the local economy is that councils will be unable to invest adequately in healthcare, education, and infrastructure, which will exacerbate the situation as firms leave the area.
The Group has made it its mission to address the issue of an ageing workforce and youth unemployment in a variety of industries. The key to resolving this skills crisis is to not only increase the amount of funds available to close the skills gap in these businesses, but also to use the expertise, experience, and enthusiasm of current employees to urge young people to pursue careers in the area. This places the emphasis on businesses to provide actual opportunities and significant experience to the younger generation, allowing them to flourish and become the next generation of industry leaders.
For several years, INFRA Skills, a subsidiary of Auctus Management Group, has been recruiting apprentices aged 16 to 24 from the West Midlands area to work on a variety of high-profile projects, including Network Rail’s High Output Track renewals and Volker Fitzpatrick’s New Street Station Gateway project. We also work closely with armed forces leaders to cross/up skill applicants into other sectors as part of our youth development programme.
