Workforce supply

Slot-faces-Machine

Alongside the introduction of policies designed to increase the skills base within the UK, such as the apprenticeship levy and immigration skills charge, the political context around managing and reducing migration has intensified. It is important to reflect on this, to consider what it means for our sector and what we can do differently to enhance local recruitment and retention activity in what is a very competitive UK labour market, in most parts of the country.

We have a range of programmes to help employers look differently at attracting and retaining a talented and diverse workforce.
