Future Proof Greater Manchester Employer Workshop: Breaking down the barriers to recruitment

Many young people from disadvantaged backgrounds face multiple barriers to employment. From having a disability to fulfilling caring responsibilities, the compounding effect of these barriers makes it even more difficult for these young people to find employment. However, by employing people who face these barriers, employers can tap into a hugely underutilised talent pool, which can help to address significant skills gaps.

To tackle this issue, we would like to invite you to a practical workshop, kindly hosted by DWF, focusing on how they can break down the barriers to recruitment for young people who face multiple barriers.

Open to all HR professionals/Early Careers/Talent Managers based in the Greater Manchester area, workshop delegates will have the opportunity to:

  • Hear howother companies like GPL have used alternative entry level application processes and referral partnerships to recruit young people who face multiple barriers.
  • Receive top tips on how they can implement these techniques in their own organisations.
  • Collaborate with other delegates and take part in a group activity to create a more accessible recruitment process for young people who face multiple barriers.
  • Hear about some of the success stories of employers hiring young people from the Greater Manchester Talent Match programme.

Spaces at this workshop are limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Please note that by signing up to this workshop, you are happy for your details to be shared with both Business in the Community and Greater Manchester Talent Match. Your details will not be shared with other third party partners.
