The opportunity will be sent out via the Opportunity Alert Service

Find a trainer service FAQs

Nothing! This is a free service with no commission to pay at any stage.

This service follows five simple steps:

Step 1: Message Sharon with your requirements for a trainer by the form on this page or via email

Step 2: Sharon will contact you and send a questionnaire/template to confirm the details

Not at all. Where you advertise for a trainer is up to you. Many businesses use this service because it reaches a pool of experienced trainers without further advertising, but it’s entirely up to you if you want to broaden your search.

I can’t guarantee that you will find a trainer with the skills and experience that you need at the time you need them.

However, the training opportunity will be presented to a diverse group of high calibre trainers, giving you the best chance of finding the right fit for your organisation. 

Absolutely. I am always delighted to share new training opportunities through my Alert Service, and I welcome future Find a Trainer requests from businesses, as it usually means they had a great experience the first time!

Equally, it’s a thrill to hear when businesses and trainers team up for long-term collaborations.

Praise for our trainer finding service

Sharon’s excellent Associate Alerts service was invaluable to ted Learning when sourcing new associate trainers at a time of expansion. Within minutes of our advert being sent out by Sharon we were contacted by lots of experienced training professionals who were keen to join us…. so much so that we ended up having to put in an additional stage to the recruitment process in order to consider the applications effectively! After a thoroughly enjoyable time meeting our final stage applicants and seeing them train, we ended up welcoming several new trainers into the ted Learning family. Would highly recommend the Associate Alerts service – it’s really straightforward to use and the calibre of trainers who subscribe to it is high, we’d definitely use it again in the future.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank The Trainers Training Company for supporting my search for a training facilitator. It’s not what you know, it’s who you know…! After sending my own notifications about the post I was getting little response, so I took my own advice and started to search through LinkedIn contacts etc. One of Sharon’s posts just happened to be there when I went in and the rest is history! After receiving numerous responses, I have now sourced the appropriate person for supporting my request and this would not have happened without Sharon’s company. It’s a unique idea, a great service and supports both sides of the training spectrum- sourcing and delivering. I fully endorse and recommend anybody who is searching for a training support function to use Sharon’s resource as it is vast! I will definitely use this company in the future.

I can highly recommend Sharon and the trainer alert service she provides. UniTrain Ltd had a situation where our client required at short notice a programme of Communication & Presentation Skills courses to deliver to accountants and senior management. Their pre-requisite was the trainer needed to be qualified in accountancy and have strong exposure in delivering these training subjects to Accountancy companies. Thankfully, Sharon was able to find us a trainer.

I would recommend Sharon and The Trainers Training Company to Training Managers who are looking to grow a credible bank of high-caliber training professionals. I am a Manchester-based Sales Training Manager and during January of this year I was tasked with growing our bank of Sales Training Consultants situated in and around the Greater London area in order to support our growing training division. Sharon was referred to me via a mutual associate and from the outset I was greatly impressed with both the ease and efficiency with which The Trainers Company operates. Within 24 hours of my forwarding my request for associate sales trainers to Sharon it was circulated across her network and I was receiving responses from suitably qualified and experienced professionals.

I put out a request on Sharon’s network for some trainers for a big project. She was excellent – efficient, prompt, thorough and professional. I had a big response from her network and was oversubscribed with highly qualified people. It was a challenge to keep the numbers down.
If you need good trainers I would thoroughly recommend her.

If anyone is looking to commission some trainers for their organisation then look no further than Sharon Gaskin. She has a network of great trainers that can suit all budgets. My only problem with this service was I had too many great people to choose from so I agonised over who I wanted to work with. I could have easily worked with the vast majority of people that connected with me.

At edoMidas, we've used Sharon's Opportunity Alert Service on a couple of occasions and have always been impressed with the quality of candidates who have applied to join our team.

It's been a real timesaver to be able to tap into a ready pool of talent and not sift through lots of unsuitable applications.

Sharon offers a unique service and she is brilliant to deal with - always responsive, helpful and gracious with her time. We will definitely use this service again.
