CISA is a new initiative from the US Federal Trade Commission, which will help companies create new careers opportunities.
The US-based agency said it would invest $2bn to support new career pathways in the US, helping companies create 100,000 jobs for US citizens in 2018, up from 75,000 in 2018.
The company will also work with its partner in the UK to create training and job placement opportunities for UK citizens.
Careers Academy has been set up by the US government to bring together US-born graduates of the US’s best colleges and universities to share knowledge and skills.
The aim is to provide the US with a pool of talent that will be exported to the UK.
“We’re thrilled to see the Careers Initiative being expanded in this way by the Federal Trade Commissions, a leading voice for the US and UK’s international workforce,” said Careers CEO Matt Karpinski.
“By helping businesses create more than 2.7 million new jobs in the United States, the initiative will create over 4 million US jobs and tens of thousands of UK jobs in 2020.”
Careers will help businesses and individuals to find, recruit and retain the talent they need to thrive, innovate and build the most successful companies in the world.
“The US government is also making an investment of more than $1.5bn in the program, which was set up in 2015.
The US-UK partnership will allow us to strengthen our relationship with the United Nations and its member states, and to strengthen trade and investment relationships with the European Union, China and India.””
The United Kingdom is an important destination for the U.S. and a strong partner for Canada and the U, and this investment demonstrates our close and reciprocal relationships,” said Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in a statement.
“The US-UK partnership will allow us to strengthen our relationship with the United Nations and its member states, and to strengthen trade and investment relationships with the European Union, China and India.”
