Employer workshop: Attracting Bristol’s diverse young talent into your business - 28 November
October 24 2017
We know that 31% of the West of England LEP area have at least one hard to fill vacancy. Many businesses also struggle to recruit young people, with only 33% of employers in the area having hired an education leaver in the last three years. With youth unemployment at 6.2% - 50% higher than the overall unemployment rate, there is untapped talent that businesses can utilise to address the skills gap and create a more diverse workforce.
To help tackle this issue, we would like to invite HR professionals/Early Careers/Talent Managers based in the Bristol area to attend our workshop, kindly hosted by KPMG, focusing on how you can attract diverse young talent into your business.
Date and time: Thursday 28 November from 10:30am – 1:30pm followed by lunch
Location: KPMG, 66 Queen Square, Bristol, BS1 4BE
The purpose of the event for delegates is to:
Hear from some the area’s leading employers including KPMG about what they are doing to attract diverse young talent.
Access practical advice from leading employers and from BITC’s Youth Employment team on this issue.
Participate in an interactive activity on how businesses can attract diverse talent into their workforce.
Network with employers across the region to share best practice for attracting diverse young talent.
