Speaking on the strategic partnership, Chief Executive Officer of TimesPro, Anish Srikrishna, said:
The hospitality industry will witness phenomenal growth as India emerges as a preferred tourist destination and attracts millions of international and domestic visitors. The Certificate in Hospitality and Hotel Management, launched by TimesPro in collaboration with The Job Plus and The People Network, will provide learners with skills that resonate with the changing industry requirements and employment opportunities across leading organisations.
Additionally, NHS will provide nurses with work visas, immigration support, and accommodation for the initial three months. According to NHS Digital data in England, there are 1,226,677 nursing staff, with the NHS employing 1.4 million people, making it the largest employer in Europe. There are currently over 360,000 nursing roles available.
Jobizo’s focus is to revolutionise the Healthcare Industry by introducing the Gig Workforce model. In the current scenario, most healthcare workers in the industry are exhausted & demotivated due to overwork, staff shortage, extended shifts and low wages. Similarly, healthcare employers also need more trained and verified staff, high hiring costs and longer hiring periods. The platform aims to be a one-stop solution for all these problems & thus, empower both Healthcare employees and institutions.
Co-founder & Chairman of Jobizo, Naveen Trehan, said:
We aim to formalise the Indian gig economy by revolutionising the healthcare industry and simplifying processes for recruitment in hospitals, nursing homes, overseas ventures, etc. Our professional services will provide highly skilled personnel for our workforce and improve employability in the sector. The association with TimesPro and IFAN Global is the perfect platform for our nurses who will get employed across various National Health Services Hospitals in the United Kingdom.
