Resilience and Employability Conference
Unlocking the Hidden Labour Force
Are you struggling to find the right candidates for your roles? Join our free event and access the help you need.
In partnership with Portland Charity, we are using this high-profile conference to give you insight into Government policy, practical tools and strategies to overcome recruitment challenges, by accessing the huge, yet hidden labour pool of ex-service personnel from within the Justice System and people with disabilities.
Join us and our A List panel of guest speakers for an inspirational and thought- provoking event that will showcase how tapping into this labour pool can really help your business and colleagues thrive.
We are able to offer this event free of charge, thanks to generous funding from The Jones 1986 Charitable Trust.
We are delighted to offer a packed agenda of influential guest speakers who will share their experiences and practices as inclusive employers and can help us overcome myths and challenges around employing ex-offenders or disabled people. Headline speakers include:
Ben Bradley MP
Conservative MP for Mansfield and Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council.
Alex Norris MP
Labour MP for Nottingham North and Shadow Minister for Policing of the UK.
From war hero to sporting hero, Jon was the most seriously injured Commando to have survived the infamous Operation Herrick 12 tour in Afghanistan in 2007.
He is an internationally sought-after inspirational and motivational speaker and top level para-athlete representing Great Britain in both Marathon Kayaking and Ocean Racing Kayaking.
