Outsourced Employment

We have been operating as an employment agency since 2012. We are an approved Apprenticeship Training Agency (ATA) and are quality assured by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA).

Outsourced employment is available for apprentices, under graduates, post graduates, industrial placements and interns. The distinctive feature of the service is that Cogent Skills employs the individual, taking all the HR and performance management responsibilities, on behalf of the host employer.

The host employer pays the individuals’ wage and a monthly employment fee (a percentage of the individuals’ annual salary) to Cogent Skills.
