Tuesday 7 December: skills and recruitment

9-10am, via Zoom

REGISTER HERE

A week-long programme of networking, debates, inspirational talks and celebrations will take place in December as Lancashire Business Week returns for a second year.

People are the drivers of all our businesses and recruiting the best is a constant challenge. 

The pandemic and the ongoing fall-out from Brexit have both brought new issues to the fore – skills are being lost from certain sectors and recruitment has become more competitive. 

The announcement that the National Cyber Force, with its £5 billion budget and expectation of more than 2,000 jobs, will be based in Lancashire was welcomed. 

High quality universities, colleges and schools were among the reasons Lancashire was selected and the business community can take heart from that. 

A dilemma both for policy makers and business leaders is balancing the skills requirements we have now with those we expect in the future. 

Influencing the skills agenda is important to business and encouraged by educators and trainers – this event will provide a forum for converting those ambitions into reality.
