Exeter Works and Youth Hub Devon are inviting businesses to an event as part of National Careers Week on Friday 11 March. The event will provide useful tools and support that will enable employers to approach recruitment differently, whilst also looking after their existing workforce.

We know that there are currently more jobs than job seekers.

We also know that employees are looking for more than just a good salary.

Flexible working arrangements, work / life balance, support for our mental health and the overall culture of an organisation, all influence our decision making when choosing our next job. Employers need to think about how to recruit and retain the right people for their business and culture.

You’ll hear from employers who have embraced these approaches to their recruitment and retention, and you’ll be able to consider how they might work for your organisation.

Guest speakers at the breakfast session;

● Clodagh Murphy, Chair of Exeter Chamber and Cathedral Appointments

● Lisa Vanstone, Managing Director, One Voice Media

● Sandra Davison and Laura Taylor, LiveWest

There is a wide range of support available. Come along and find out more for you and your business.

8.30 – 9.30 – Breakfast, networking, and employer keynotes

9.30 – 12 noon – drop in and talk to a range of organisations about how they can support you and your staff, this includes; Disability Confident, Seetec, Able Futures, Be Ready Employer Hub, Waymakers and Devon Mind
