• AI recruitment content generator Hally AI has launched. It aims to generate recruitment content ranging from sales, admin and marketing material in minutes. It is capable of generating personalised job descriptions, vacancy announcements and other recruitment content that is tailored to specific job roles and organisational culture.

The AI tool generates content that is inclusive and unbiased and ensures that job descriptions and job adverts are free of gender, race, and other biases, enabling businesses to attract diverse candidates.

• In a scheme launched by the pilot Digital Skills Training Academy, jobseekers from disadvantaged and low-income communities will be offered the chance to learn skills to help fill London’s critical shortage of IT specialists. The scheme aims to offer employers upskilled and work-ready candidates.

The scheme is a joint enterprise between human services provider Ingeus and CodeVerse, which offers trained and diverse candidates to companies seeking to fill IT vacancies across the UK. The initiative will see Ingeus hold open days at its 14 London centres for participants on the government-funded Restart Scheme interested in an IT career. After a pre-assessment they will be offered a free place on a two-week digital skills boot camp.
